Tasiu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase additional farmland and double his harvest.

Tasiu's story

Tasiu lives with his wife and children in a modest mud house in a small village in Kaduna, Nigeria. This is a small community where farming is the primary source of income for most families.

Tasiu is glad to be a member of Babban Gona, a partner in the fight against poverty. Building on his previous loan, Tasiu expects grow maize at a rate up to double the national average.

As a member, Tasiu will receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing him with a cash advance. He will use the loan to purchase more farmland to scale his business and further increase his income. Additionally, Babban Gona will support Tasiu by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, he does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

Tasiu can now generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. He also notes that his happiest memory as a Babban Gona farmer has being feeding his family all the time.
