Halliru's story

Halliru, 40, is an experienced maize farmer from Pampaida Makaranta village, Kaduna State. This will be Halliru’s second year as a Babban Gona member. Last year, Halliru, with the help of a Babban Gona loan, was able to access high quality fertilizer, improved seeds and mechanization services, which all increased his productivity and profits. This year, a Babban Gona loan will ensure that Halliru has access to the high quality inputs such as hybrid seeds, fertilizers and mechanization services that he needs to cultivate high yields and high quality of maize. Halliru is very dedicated to his Babban Gona maize business and as a leader in the community he is constantly encouraging other farmers to become members. His children, like many of the children in the community have come to refer to Babban Gona as the solution to hunger. Halliru has dreams of one day owning a successful commercial farm that will be able to supply large companies like Nestle.
