Asama'u'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 seed to get a good yield and enhance her living standards.

Asama'u's story

Asama'u 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 hardworking smallholders, she dreams of growing her farm business.

Asama'u 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 Asama'u’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 2017, her happiest memory was building a better house for her family.

With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Asama'u is looking forward to an abundant harvest. Asama'u plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to save for her family's future.
