Ruth's story

Ruth 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, Ruth dreams of expanding her farm business.

Ruth 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 Ruth’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to three times in net income, compared to the average Nigerian farmer, from selling her maize.

Since she joined Babban Gona, her happiest memory has been earning enough income to be able to send her children to school. With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Ruth is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Ruth plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to build a better house for her family.
