Sulaimam's story

Sulaimam is 38 years of age, married with more than four children, and lives in a rural town in Kaduna, Nigeria. He lives in a small community where maize farming is the major occupation and means of livelihood.

Due to very low incomes, it has become difficult for farmers like Sulaimam to support their family’s needs. This is a major challenge commonly faced by smallholders regardless of the yield they achieve during harvest. By working with Babban Gona, this loan will not only enable Sulaimam to access better yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield, but will also help him earn up to 2.8 times the average net income of Nigerian farmers from selling his maize to premium buyers. This will ensure that Sulaimam can continue to provide for his family.

At the end of the season, Sulaimam plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to access better health facilities for his family.

This loan is special because:
