Minnaratu's story

Minnaratu is single 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, Minnaratu dreams of scaling her farm business. Minnaratu 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 Minnaratu’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.

With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Minnaratu 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.
