Bala's story

Bala is a 41-year-old father of five, maize farmer and a Babban Gona member. Thanks to his membership with Babban Gona, he finally has access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, he has the opportunity to double his income and yield this season and can expect to earn up to $1,350/ha. With the increased income, he plans to educate all of his children and improve their standard of living. His most recent loan from Babban Gona provided him with enough fertilizer to optimize his yields and access a product that eliminates a food toxin in his maize, enabling his family to eat healthier maize and for him to get a premium price for the maize he sells.
