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

A loan helped to buy additional farmland in order to increase her harvest, boosting her income.

Halima's story

Halima is a maize farmer who is married and lives with her husband and children in a small village in the state of Kaduna. Her village is a small community where farming is the primary means of income for most families.

Using her last input loan from Babban Gona, Halima gained access to high-quality farm inputs and has been experiencing a tremendous increase in productivity. She now expects a bountiful harvest.

As a Babban Gona member, Halima will now receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing her with cash to buy additional land in order to expand her farm and increase her harvest. Additionally, Babban Gona will support Halima by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now she will not forfeit profits by selling her maize at low harvest prices.

Halima notes that working with Babban Gona has improved her life considerably, by providing her with training and a holistic agricultural package. With additional farmland, Halima can now generate earnings significantly above the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income and secure her family’s future.
