Musa's story

Musa is a 36-year-old farmer from Daura. As a Babban Gona member, Musa, is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Musa can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the National average of 14. However, Musa is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. When asked, Musa said “I plan to use the money I make to educate my children; solome, meshech, and sedrach, and in 5 years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs”. With this loan, he is well on his way to achieving this dream.
