Saadu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved inputs in order to reap a good harvest and enhance his living standards.

Saadu's story

Saadu lives in a modest mud house with his wife and 4 children in a small village in Kaduna state. Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Saadu will, because of this loan, be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and widely accepted in his community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment.

These inputs will enable Saadu to optimize his yield, allowing him to attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, which is 2 times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income earnings up to 2.8 times the national average, but also ensure that he can continue to provide for his family.

Saadu will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family and to open an agro-dealer shop.
