Ezekiel's story

Ezekiel is a 30 year old farmer from Pegi. As a Babban Gona member, Ezekiel is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Ezekiel 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, Ezekiel is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 per hectare this season. When asked, Ezekiel said “I plan to use the money I make to educate my children: Simon and Timothy, and in 5 years, I want to make more money for myself and my family.” With this loan, he is well on his way to achieving this dream.
