A loan of $100 helped to access high quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Inusa's story

Inusa is a maize farmer and member of Babban Gona. Inusa joined Babban Gona primarily to create a better future for his children; Salisu, Nura and Usama. Inusa is excited that Babban Gona offers a lasting solution to ending the cycle of poverty. For the first time, Inusa will have access to quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed. Without this loan, he would be subjected to buying these products in the open market where the products are not only very expensive, but are often diluted with external products like sand. With access to high quality inputs, Inusa can reap up to 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14 and earn up to $2000/ha, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. When asked, Inusa said “I plan to use the money I make this year to expand my farmland”. Inusa is not thinking about just this year; he said, In 5 years, he wants to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs.”
