Kaduna, Nigeria / Farming

A loan of $50 helped to double her income and yield.


Hannatu's story

Hannatu lives in Kwankwani and is driven by one goal: to “become the most profitable farmer in my community.” It is the desire to fulfill this ambition that led her to join Babban Gona. Now, as a member, she finally has the opportunity to access credit, good markets and input from a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Hannatu can earn up to $2,000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the Nigerian farmer’s average annual income. Our typical member grows 30 bags of maize/hectare, more than double the national average of 14. However, Hannatu is ambitious and is aiming to reap at least 35 bags per hectare this season. By doing so, she will finally have enough money to make significant life changes. When asked what she plans to do with her income from this season, she said: “I plan to use the money I make to expand my farmland." With this loan, she will be able to access all the inputs and services she needs to make this dream a reality.
