Auwalu's story

Auwalu is a Babban Gona farmer from Tafida. Auwalu is driven by one goal: to “ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs.” It is this ambition that led Auwalu to join Babban Gona. Now, as a Babban Gona member, he finally has the opportunity to access credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Auwalu can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. As a Babban Gona farmer, Auwalu can yield up to 30 bags/hectare; double the national average of 14. Auwalu is hoping that as a result of this expected yield, he will finally have enough money to make significant life changes. When asked what changes he would like to make, he said “I plan to use the money I make to expand my farmland. Ultimately, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs.” With this loan, Auwalu will be able to access all the inputs and services to make these dreams reality.
