Bulus's story

Bulus is a 28-year-old hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and one child in a small village in Kaduna state.

Previously, despite toiling for long hours on his farm, Bulus was only able to feed his family two meals a day. Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Bulus 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 fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment.

This will enable Bulus to optimize his yield, where 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 earnings 2.8 times the national average but also ensure that Bulus can continue to provide for his family. Bulus will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family. Bulus is confident that with Babban Gona he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
