Dauda's story

Dauda is a happily married 29 year old maize farmer from Katsinawa Nakunne village in Kaduna State. As Dauda grows his family, he is excited about the opportunity that Babban Gona gives him to triple his yield and profit compared to the average farmer. As a hard working family man, Dauda plans to use his Babban Gona loan to access necessary inputs, such as fertilizer and improved seeds,that will increase the productivity and profitability of his farm so that he can provide for his family of three, achieve better health for his children and improve his family’s standard of living. In addition, this loan will give him the capacity to store his maize and have it marketed in premium markets at a premium price, increasing his profitability. Dauda hopes to eventually diversify his farm business by also raising livestock along with his maize farm.
