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

A loan helped to purchase improved inputs in order to boost his harvest and earn more money.

Badamasi's story

Badamasi is 28 years old and married with 4 children. He lives in a rural town in Kaduna, Nigeria. It is a small community where maize farming is the major occupation and means of livelihood.

Due to the very low income realized from his farming business, it has become difficult for farmers like Badamasi to support his family's needs. This is a major challenge common to smallholders regardless of the yield they achieve during harvest.

By working with Babban Gona, this loan will not only enable Badamasi to get access to higher quality seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield, but the loan will also help him earn up to 2.8 times in net income compared to the average Nigerian farmer from selling his maize to premium buyers. This will ensure that Badamasi can continue to provide for his family.

At the end of the season, Badamasi plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to build a better house for his family.
