Dahiru's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.

Dahiru's story

Dahiru is a 28-year-old hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his family in a small village in Kaduna state. Previously, despite toiling for long hours on his farm, he was only able to feed his family two meals a day.

Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Dahiru will, because of this loan, be provided with higher-yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizer based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable him to optimize his yield, where he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tons per hectare, two times the national average in Nigeria.

This will not only increase his income earnings 2.8 times the national average, but also ensures that Dahiru can continue to provide for his family.

He will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family.

Dahiru is confident that with Babban Gona he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
