Total loan: $225


Kaduna, KD, Nigeria / Housing

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

A loan helped to purchase cement and tools to build a larger house so his family can live comfortably.

Yau's story

Yau is a maize farmer, he is married and lives with his wife and children in a modest mud house in a small village in Kaduna.

Thanks to his last input loan from Babban Gona, he gained access to high-yielding seed and fertilizer, and now expects to double his harvest.

As a Babban Gona member, Yau will now receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing him with a cash advance. He will use this loan to build a better house for his family. Additionally, Babban Gona will support Yau 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.

Yau can now generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. His happiest memory as a Babban Gona farmer has been feeding his family all the time.
