Aminu'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 his farm yield.

Aminu's story

Aminu lives in a simple mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. Aminu is married with three children and grows maize to support his family. Since joining Babban Gona in 2016, his happiest memory was sending his children to school. With this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and seed in order to get a good harvest and grow his business.

Aminu believes that by continuing to work with Babban Gona, he will achieve his goal this season to double (or increase) last year's yield. Apart from increasing Aminu's yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times in net income, compared to the national average, from selling his maize to premium buyers.

At the end of season, Aminu plans to use the profits he earns from his harvest to pay his children's school fees and enhance their standard of living. Aminu looks forward to living in the improved house and to many more abundant harvests.
