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

A loan helped to buy fertilizers and seed to get a good yield and enhance his living standard.

Haruna's story

Haruna is from a small community in Kaduna state where he grows maize to support his family. Haruna has been a Babban Gona member for one season. Haruna's goal for this farming season to learn new agronomic practices.

With this loan, he will get access to improved seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, and other inputs that are critical to increasing his yield to up to 4.2 metric tons per hectare, which is more than double the national average in Nigeria. This will enable him to generate earnings of up to three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. Haruna recalls opening an agro-dealer shop as his happiest memory as a Babban Gona member.

Haruna looks forward to a brighter future with Babban Gona and to making many more great memories with his family.
