Fatima's story

Fatima 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, Fatima dreams of scaling her farm business.

She 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 Fatima’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, Fatima is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to open an agro-dealer shop.
