Kaduna, KD, Nigeria / Agriculture

Bulus's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved inputs in order to get a good harvest and earn more money.

Bulus's story

Bulus, who is 49 years of age and married with 4 children, lives in a rural town in Kaduna, Nigeria. He lives in 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 Bulus 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 Bulus to get access to better-yielding 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. Selling his maize to premium buyers will ensure that Bulus can continue to provide for his family.

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