Salisu's story

Salisu remembers not being able to feed his family during a particularly bad harvest. This was before he became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Salisu, 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, Salisu is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. “In 5 years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs” expressed Salisu With this loan, Salisu is well on his way to achieving this dream.
