Asabe's story

Asabe is married and lives with her family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many driven smallholders, Asabe dreams of scaling her farm business.

Asabe is returning to work with Babban Gona this season so she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield. Apart from increasing Asabe's yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to three times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize.

Since she joined Babban Gona, Asabe's happiest memory was sending her children to school. With lenders' support to grow her farming business, Asabe is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to open an agro dealer shop.
