Uwani's story

Uwani remembers the extreme poverty that his family faced during a particularly bad harvest. This was before she became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Uwani, 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, Uwani is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. “In 5 years, I want to become the most profitable farmer in my community” expressed Uwani With this loan, Uwani is well on her way to achieving this dream.
