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

A loan helped him to buy high-quality supplies to get a good yield and earn more money.

Abubakar's story

Abubakar is married and lives with his family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many committed smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm.

Abubakar is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as he will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers, and other essential farm supplies that will boost his yield. Apart from increasing Abubakar’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times more net income than the average Nigerian farmer. Since he joined Babban Gona in 2017, his happiest memory was buying more farmland.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Abubakar is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay his children's school fees.
