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

A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seeds to get a good yield and grow his farming business.

Abdullahi's story

Abdullahi is from a small community in Kaduna state where he grows maize to support his family. Abdullahi has been a Babban Gona member for two seasons and as a result, he has been able to send two children to a better school with the profits from his farm.

Abdullahi’s goal for this farming season is to learn new agronomic practices. With this loan, he will get access to improved seeds, fertilizers, herbicides and other inputs which are critical to increasing his yield to up to 4.2 metric tonnes per hectare, which is more than double the national average in Nigeria. This will enable him generate earnings of up to four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income.

Abdullahi recalls buying more farmland as his happiest memory as a Babban Gona member. Abdullahi looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona and to making many more great memories with his family.
