A loan of $100 helped to access high quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed in order to double income and yield.


Rahila's story

Rahila is a maize farmer and member of Babban Gona. Rahila joined Babban Gona primarily to create a better future for her children: Yahaya, Ayuba and Abubakar. Rahila is excited that Babban Gona offers a lasting solution to ending the cycle of poverty. For the first time, Rahila will have access to quality inputs such as fertilizer and seed. Without this loan, she would be subjected to buying these products in the open market where the products are not only very expensive, but are often diluted with external products like sand. With access to high quality inputs, Rahila can reap up to 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14 and earn up to $2000/ha, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. When asked, Rahila said “I plan to use the money I make this year to provide more food and clothing for my family.” Rahila is not thinking about just this year alone; she said, “in 5 years, I want to become the most profitable farmer in my community.”
