Zubairu'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.

Zubairu's story

Zubairu is married and lives with his family in a modest cement house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation, and like many industrious smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm business.

Zubairu is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as he will get access to better yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield. Apart from increasing Zubairu’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times net income from selling his maize. Since he first joined Babban Gona in 2016, his happiest memory was sending his children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Zubairu is looking forward to an abundant harvest. Zubairu plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay his children's school fees.
