Total loan: $300
Kaduna, KD, Nigeria / Agriculture
Dantani'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.
Dantani, who is 28 years old, is married with 2 children and 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 Dantani to support his family's needs. This is a major challenge common to smallholders regardless of the yield they achieve during a harvest. By working with Babban Gona, this loan will not only enable Dantani 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 the average Nigerian farmers' net income from selling his maize to premium buyers. This ensures that Dantani can continue to provide for his family. At the end of the season, Dantani plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to purchase additional farmland so as to expand his maize farming operations
