Rahila Elizabeth's story
Rahila Elizabeth remembers not being able to pay school fees during a particularly bad harvest. This was before she became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Rahila Elizabeth, like all Babban Gona members, can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the Nigerian farmer’s annual income. The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14. However, Rahila Elizabeth is ambitious and is aiming to reap 40 bags per hectare this season. “In 5 years, I want to make more money for myself and my family” expressed Rahila Elizabeth. With this loan, Rahila Elizabeth is well on her way to achieving this dream.
