A loan of $225 helped to access high-quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Samaila's story

Samaila remembers not being able to pay school fees during a particularly bad harvest. This was before he became a Babban Gona Member. Now, Samaila, 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, Samaila is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. “Ultimately, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs” expressed Samaila. With this loan, Samaila is well on his way to achieving this dream.
