Ayuba is grateful that Babban Gona has come into his life and hopes he can bring more of his family members into the program. Even though his daughter is less than a year old, he and his wife hope to have more children. Ayuba would like to work with Babban Gona to expand his farm into livestock, rearing goats and cows in the future to provide additional income. He would like to become a role model for other farmers, encouraging them to invest in their land, their future and the future of their children.
More information about this loan
Babban Gona Farmer Organization (Babban Gona) is a farmer services organization committed to lifting 5 million smallholder farmers out of poverty by 2030. It divides smallholder farmers into Trust Groups and delivers training and development services, inputs like seeds on credit and post-harvest marketing services. This Kiva loan will thus be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit. This system increases farmers’ yields up to 4 times the national average. In addition, Babban Gona markets its farmers’ produce to premium markets over the course of the year, ensuring that they receive the best price possible for their produce and have a steady flow of income year round. Kiva loans are used to help Babban Gona expand its services to more rural areas in Northern Nigeria.
