Dalha's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seed in order to get a good harvest and grow his business.


Dalha's story

Dalha lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Dalha is married with two children and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2016, his happiest memory was buying a car.

With this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and seed in order to get a good harvest and grow his business. Dalha believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season to learn new agronomic practices. Apart from increasing Dalha's yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help his earn up to three times the net income compared to the national average, from selling his maize to premium buyers.

At the end of season, Dalha plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to buy a car and enhance their standard of living. Dalha looks forward to living in the improved house and to many more abundant harvests.
