Alh. Adamu's story

Alh. Adamu is maize farmer from Suddu village. As a member of Babban Gona, Alh. Adamu is excited about the opportunity to become a better farmer. With Babban Gona’s support he has the oppotrtunity to attain yields of up to 8 metric tonnes of maize per hectare of land, 5.5 times the average yield in Nigeria.

Before joining Babban Gona, Alh. Adamu would have had to sell his maize at harvest, a period when maize prices are at their lowest to meet his immediate cash needs. With this loan and Babban Gona’s support, Alh. Adamu can store his maize and sell it in the future for up to 37% higher than the market price at harvest.

Alh. Adamu is grateful to be part of the Babban Gona family and in the end hopes to use his increased earnings to purchase a motorbike and do business with it.
