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


A loan helped to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and use the profits to secure his family's future.


Janaidu's story

Janaidu lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Janaidu is married with one child and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2014, his happiest memory was sending his child to school.

With this loan, he will be able to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and use the profits to secure his family's future. Janaidu believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season to learn new agronomic practices. Apart from increasing Janaidu's yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times in net income, compared to the national average, from selling his maize to premium buyers.

At the end of season, Janaidu plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to pay his child's school fees and enhance their standard of living. Janaidu looks forward to living in the improved house and to many more abundant harvests.
