A loan of $75 helped to access high-quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Hajara's story

Hajara remembers feeling depressed during a particularly bad harvest. This was before she became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Hajara, like all Babban Gona members, can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the Nigerian farmer’s annual income. The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14. However, Hajara is ambitious and is aiming to reap up to 35 bags per hectare this season. “In 5 years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs” expressed Hajara. With this loan, Hajara is well on her way to achieving this dream.
