Lauren's story

Lauren 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, Lauren dreams of scaling her farm business.

Lauren 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 Lauren’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 times the average net income of Nigerian farmers by selling her maize.

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