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

A loan helped to purchase more farmland in order to increase his harvest and improve the living conditions of his family.

Nura's story

Nura 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 means of income for most families.

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

As a member, Nura 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 Nura 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.

Nura 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 sending his children to better schools.
