A loan of $925 helped to buy fertilizers, seeds, and agricultural technologies to increase maize yields.


Matta's story

Matta, 45, is a mother to a family of four living in Kwatau village. Matta needs a Babban Gona loan to access the high quality inputs such as improved seeds and fertilizer that will help increase her yields. Through these high quality inputs that Matta will receive on credit, she has the opportunity to achieve yields three times higher than those of the average Nigerian farmer. In addition, this loan will give Matta the capacity to store her grain and sell in premium markets, allowing her to earn up to three times more than the average Nigerian farmer. This year, Matta is determined to achieve record yields on her farm. Matta is consistently encouraging other farmers in her community, especially women, to become Babban Gona members. She is excited to see her children’s nutritional health continue to improve as a result of the toxin-free maize that she now grows as a Babban Gona member. Matta hopes that in the next five years, she will be able to improve her family’s life in every aspect including; health, nutrition, education and housing.
