A loan of $550 helped to buy fertilizers, seeds, and agricultural technologies to increase maize yields.


Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim, 48, is a maize farmer from Pampaida Makaranta village in Kaduna State. This will be Ibrahim’s second year as a Babban Gona member. Ibrahim is pleased with the opportunity that Babban Gona provides him to meet the needs of this family of 17. Last year, Ibrahim, with the help of a Babban Gona loan, was able to access high quality fertilizer, improved seeds and mechanization services, all of which improved his productivity and profits. This year, like all Babban Gona members, Ibrahim has the opportunity to increase his yield and profit to 3 times as much as the average farmer. Through a Babban Gona loan, Ibrahim will be able to access seeds, fertilizers and other critical inputs to improve the quality of his agricultural business and increase the quantity of maize that it yields. In addition, Ibrahim hopes to maintain the health of his children by using the Babban Gona loan to access technologies to treat the maize he grows and eliminate the toxins in it so that it is safe and healthy for his children to eat. In the future, he would like to expand his maize farming business to include livestock and irrigation farming.
