Adamu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved farming inputs in order to get a good harvest and enhance his living standards.

Adamu's story

Adamu, who is 28 years of age, is single and lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and like many diligent smallholders, Adamu dreams of expanding his farm business.

Due to lack of access to quality farming inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Adamu to achieve high yields in order to make a higher income. Luckily, through a loan as a Babban Gona member, Adamu will be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment.

This will enable Adamu to optimize his yield thereby attaining yields of up to 2 times the national average in Nigeria. With lenders' support to grow his farming business, Adamu is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to open an agro-dealer shop.
