Jonathan's story

Jonathan remembers being depressed due to the hardship he faced during a particularly bad harvest. This is before he became a Babban Gona Member. Now, as a Babban Gona member, Jonathan, 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, Jonathan, is ambitious and is aiming to reap 40 per hectare this season. Jonathan expressed that beyond this season, he hopes to use his increased earning to increase the size of his farmland. With this loan, Jonathan is well on his way to achieving this dream.
