Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is a 21-year- old farmer from Maimai. As a Babban Gona member, Emmanuel, is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Emmanuel 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, Emmanuel is ambitious and is aiming to reap 70 bags per hectare this season. When asked, Emmanuel said “I plan to use the money I make to educate my children; Obadiya, Rejoice, and Kefas, and in 5 years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs." With this loan, he is well on his way to achieving this dream.
