A loan of $1,375 helped to buy fertilizers, seeds, and agricultural technologies to increase maize yields.


Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim, 30, is a hardworking maize farmer in Pampaida Makaranta village in Kaduna State. This season, Ibrahim has set a personal goal to achieve 5Mt/Ha, which is approximately 3.5 times higher than the national average yield. As a Babban Gona member, this is possible; like every Babban Gona member Ibrahim has the opportunity to achieve at least three times the yield and earn three times as much as an average farmer. A Babban Gona loan will help Ibrahim access high quality inputs such as seeds, fertilizers and technologies to remove the toxins from his maize. Ibrahim hopes to continue to grow his farming business through Babban Gona and eventually earn
enough to fully mechanize some of his farming operations. By doing so, he will be able effectively cultivate his land without relying on labor from his children, giving them more time for their studies.
