Daraja's story

Daraja is married and lives with her family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many driven smallholders, she dreams of scaling her farm business.

Daraja is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as she will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost her yield. Apart from increasing Daraja’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize.

Since she joined Babban Gona, her happiest memory was sending her children to school with lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Daraja is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to purchase additional farmland so as to expand her maize farming operations.
