Safiya'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.

Safiya's story

Safiya 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, Safiya dreams of scaling her farm business.

Safiya is returning to work with Babban Gona this season, as she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield.

Apart from increasing Safiya'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, her happiest memory was sending her children to school. With lenders' support to grow her farming business, Safiya is looking forward to a bountiful harvest.

Safiya plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to pay her children's school fees.
