Adamu's story

Adamu is married and lives in a rural town in Plateau, 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 realized from his farming business, it has become difficult for farmers like Adamu to support his family needs. This is a major challenge common to smallholders regardless of the yield they achieve during harvest.

By working with Babban Gona, this loan will not only enable Adamu get 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 from selling his maize to premium buyers hence ensuring that Adamu can continue to provide for his family.

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