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

A loan helped to buy improved farm inputs in order to increase yields.

Solomi's story

Solomi is married 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 hardworking smallholders, she dreams of growing her farm business.

Solomi 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. In addition to increasing Solomi’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to three times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize. Since she joined Babban Gona in 2015, her happiest memory has been sending her children to school.

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