Saidu's story

Saidu is a 47-year-old farmer who dreams of a better life for his family. He is excited about the opportunities Babban Gona provides him, such as access to premium markets for his maize. Like all members of Babban Gona, Saidu has the opportunity to earn up to $1,350/ha this season, which is double the average Nigerian farmer’s income. With his increased earnings, he plans to invest in the future of his children by providing them with a quality education. He hopes to expand his farming business to ten times its current size and ensure the food security of his family. With this loan, he is on his way to achieving these dreams. His most recent loan from Babban Gona provided him with enough fertilizers to improve his yields and access to a product that eliminates a food toxin in his maize, enabling his family to eat healthier maize and for him to get a premium price for the maize he sells.
