Kaduna, Nigeria / Farming

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


Muntari's story

Muntari remembers not being able to pay his children's school fees during a particularly bad harvest. This was before he became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Muntari, 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, Muntari is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. “In 5 years, I want to make more money for myself and my family” expressed Muntari. With this loan, Muntari is well on his way to achieving this dream.
