A loan of $150 helped to access high quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Habila's story

Habila is a 30-year-old farmer from Galadima. As a Babban Gona member, Habila, is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Habila 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, Habila is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season, as this loan will give him access to inputs such as improved seed. When asked how he plans to spend the money he will make from selling his produce, Habila said “I plan to use the money I make to educate my children: Anoch and Edmond. Ultimately, 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.
