Dalhatu's story

Dalhatu is a 48-year old husband, father and farmer from Pampaida Makaranta Village in Kaduna State who wishes to improve his maize farming business in order to provide a better life for his family and give his 7 children a better future through education. By accessing a Babban Gona loan, Dalhatu will have access to improved seeds, fertilizers and other inputs and technologies that will not only increase his yield but ensure that his harvest is free of toxins that make the maize unsafe for his children’s consumption. In addition, he will have the capacity to store his maize and have it sold in premium markets at a premium price, increasing his profitability. As a Babban Gona member, Dalhatu has the opportunity to get yields up to three times as much as the national average and earn up to three times as much as the average Nigerian farmer. In the future, Dalhatu would like to move from subsistence farming to commercial farming and hopes his children will also become successful Babban Gona member farmers like himself.
