Joshua's story

Joshua is a 50-year-old farmer from R/Tabo. As a Babban Gona member, Joshua is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Joshua 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, Joshua is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. When asked how he plans to spend the income he will make as a Babban Gona member, his said, “I plan to use the money to educate my children; Musa, Hassan and Usaini. My overall goal is to become the most profitable farmer in my community”. With this loan, he is well on his way to achieving these goals.
