Mathew's story

Mathew is a maize farmer and a member of Babban Gona. Mathew joined Babban Gona primarily to create a better future for his child.

Before he became a Babban Gona member, Mathew would have had to sell his maize for low prices soon after harvest, to cater for his immediate cash needs such as food and clothing. With this loan and Babban Gona’s support, Mathew can now store his maize at harvest time and sell it a few months later for up to 40% higher than the market price at harvest.

When asked, Mathew spoke of his ambition to use the additional income to educate his son: Anas. He eventually hopes to make more money for himself and his family.
