A loan of $300 helped to access high-quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Samaila's story

Samaila is a 30-year-old maize farmer. As a Babban Gona member, Samaila is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets, and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Samaila 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. When asked, Samaila says he intends to use the increased income he hopes to make from his yield increase, to provide good food and clothing for himself and his family. "Ultimately, I want to provide more money for myself and my family", expressed Samaila. With this loan Samaila is on the path of fulfilling his dream.
