Turaki's story

Turaki has been a Babban Gona member for three seasons and as a result, he has been able to send his children to a better school with the profit from his farm.

Turaki’s goal for this farming season is to increase his farm size. With this loan, he will get access to improved seeds, fertilizer, herbicides and other inputs, which are critical to increasing his yield to up to 4.2 metric tonnes per hectare, which is more than double the national average in Nigeria. This will enable him to generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income.

Turaki recalls feeding his family all the time as his happiest memory as a Babban Gona member. Turaki looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona and to making many more great memories with his family.
