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

A loan helped to purchase improved inputs in order to get a good harvest and enhance her living standards.

Hajara's story

Hajara is single and lives with her family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many driven smallholders, she dreams of growing her farm business.

Hajara is returning to work with Babban Gona this season, as she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield. Apart from increasing Hajara’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to three times the net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize. Since she joined Babban Gona in 2016, her happiest memory was sending her children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Hajara is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Hajara plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to buy more farmland.
