A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase his farm yield.

Alhaji's story

Alhaji is a 48-year-old, hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and two children in a small village in the Kaduna state.

Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Alhaji will, because of this loan, be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted, and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Alhaji to optimize his yield, where he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, two times the national average in Nigeria. This will increase his income earnings to 2.8 times the national average.

Alhaji will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family. Alhaji is confident that with Babban Gona, he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
