Total loan: $300


Kaduna, KD, Nigeria / Agriculture

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

A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.

Goma's story

Goma, who is 28 years of age, is single and lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and like many diligent smallholders, Goma dreams of expanding his farm business. Due to lack of access to quality inputs it has become difficult for farmers like Goma to achieve high yields so as to make higher income. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Goma will, because of this loan, be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Goma to optimize his yield, thereby attaining yields of up to two times the national average in Nigeria. With lenders' support to grow his farming business, Goma is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to open an agro dealer shop.
