Bature's story

Bature has been a Babban Gona member for one season, and as a result, he has been able to send two children to a better school with the profits from his farm.

Bature's goal for this farming season is to increase his farm size. With this loan, he will get access to improved seed, fertilizers, 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.

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