Dalladi's story

Dalladi is a hardworking 49-year-old maize farmer in a small village in Kaduna state. He lives in a modest mud house with his wife and more than four children.

He is returning to work with Babban Gona because, as a result of this loan, he will be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the pesticides and fertilizers recommended based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Dalladi to optimize his yield, so that he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, two times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income 2.8 times the national average, but also ensures that Dalladi can continue to provide for his family.

Dalladi will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family. He is confident that with Babban Gona, he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
