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


A loan helped to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and grow his business.


Kabiru's story

Kabiru lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Kabiru is married with one child and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2017, his happiest memory was buying more farmland.

With this loan, he will be able to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and grow his business. Kabiru believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season to double (or increase) last year's income. Apart from increasing Kabiru'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, Kabiru plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to pay his child's school fees and improve their living conditions. Kabiru looks forward to living in the improved house and to many more bountiful harvests.
