Yalwa'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 her harvests and improve the living conditions of her family.

Yalwa's story

Yalwa lives with her husband and children in a modest mud house in a small village in the state of Kaduna, Nigeria. Her village is a small community where farming is the primary means of income for most families.

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

As a member, Yalwa will receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing her with a cash advance. She will use the loan to purchase more farmland to scale her business and further increase her income.

Additionally, Babban Gona will support Yalwa by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, she does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling her maize at low harvest prices.

Yalwa can now generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. She also notes that her happiest memory as a Babban Gona farmer has been gaining better yields.
