Raaya's story

RaAya is married and lives in a rural town in Bauchi, 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 RaAya 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 enable RaAya get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield. At the end of the season, RaAya plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest as capital for his wife's business to diversify the family's income.
