Saraya'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.

Saraya's story

Saraya 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, Saraya dreams of scaling her farm business.

She is returning to work with Babban Gona this season, as she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizer and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield. Apart from increasing Saraya's yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 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, she is looking forward to a bountiful harvest.

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