A loan of $125 helped to access high-quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.

Abdullahi's story

Abdullahi remembers sinking into a deep depression last year as a result of a particularly bad harvest. This was before he became a Babban Gona member. Now, Abdullahi, like all Babban Gona members, can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the Nigerian farmer’s annual income.

The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14. However, Abdullahi is ambitious and is aiming to reap 60 bags per hectare this season. “In five years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs,” expressed Abdullahi. With this loan, Abdullahi is well on his way to achieving this dream.
