Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is married and lives in a rural town in Kaduna, Nigeria. He lives in a small community where maize farming is the major occupation and means of livelihood. Due to poor farming practices and the very low income generated from his farming business, it has become difficult for farmers like him to support their household needs. This is a major challenge that is common to smallholder farmers, regardless of the yield they achieve during harvest.

By working with Babban Gona, this loan will not only enable Ibrahim to have access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers, and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield, but the loan will also help him earn up to 2.8 times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer who sells his maize to premium buyers. This will ensure that Ibrahim can continue to provide for his family.

At the end of the season, Ibrahim plans to use the profit he earns from his harvest to access better health care for his family and to adequately provide for them.
