A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seed to get a good yield and earn more money.

Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is from a small community in Kaduna state where he grows maize to support his family. Ibrahim has been a Babban Gona member for one season and as a result, he has been able to send one child to a better school with the profits from his farm.

Ibrahim’s goal for this farming season is to double last year's yield. With this loan, he will get access to improved seed, fertilizers, herbicides, and other inputs which are critical to increasing his yield to up to 4.2 metric tonnes per hectare, which is more than double the national average in Nigeria. This will enable him generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income

Ibrahim recalls sending his children to school as his happiest memory as a Babban Gona member. Ibrahim looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona and to making many more great memories with his family.

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
