A loan helped to purchase farm inputs to increase farm yields.

Usman's story

Usman lives with his family in a small village in Kaduna state. He is a farmer. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and like many diligent smallholders, Usman dreams of expanding his farm. Usman's farm income is low and it is difficult for farmers like him support their families. This is a major common challenge for smallholders regardless of their yields and harvest.

Usman is requesting a loan with Babban Gona to access better-yielding seeds, fertilizer and essential farm inputs to help boost his yield. He will use his loan to increase his net income up to 2.8 times greater than the average Nigerian farmer. Usman will sell his maize to premium buyers thereby ensuring that he can continue to provide for his family. Usman will use the profits generated from his maize sales this season to access better health care for his family.
