Victoria's story

Victoria is married and lives with her family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and like many industrious smallholders, she dreams of expanding her farm business.

Victoria 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. Aside from increasing Victoria’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 times in net income compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize. Since Victoria joined Babban Gona in 2016, her happiest memory was sending her children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Victoria is looking forward to an abundant harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay her children's school fees.
