Dauda's story

Dauda is a 46-year-old farmer from Rafin Tabo. As a Babban Gona member, Dauda, is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Dauda can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the National average of 14. However, Dauda is ambitious and is aiming to reap above both he national and Babban Gona averages this season. When asked, Dauda said “I plan to use the money I make to educate my children; Ubadiya, Timoty, and Gidiyon, and in 5 years, I want to become the most profitable farmer in my community”. With this loan, he is well on his way to achieving this dream.
