Rabi'atu's story

Rabi'atu 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, Rabi'atu 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 her 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 was sending her children to school. With lenders’ support to grow her farming business, Rabi'atu is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. She plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to access better health facilities for her family.
