Aisha's story

Aisha is a hard-working farmer that lives with her family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many diligent smallholders, Aisha dreams of expanding her farm business. Due to poor farming practices it has become difficult for farmers like Aisha to achieve high yields so as to make higher income.

Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Aisha will, through this loan, be provided with higher-yield seeds that are locally adapted and widely accepted in her local community. She will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of her field assessment. This will enable Aisha to optimize her yield, thereby attaining yields of up to 2 times the national average in Nigeria.

With the support of lenders to grow her farming business, Aisha is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay her children’s school fees.
