Usman's story

Usman is married and lives with his family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation, and like many committed smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm business. Usman is returning to work with Babban Gona this season, as he will get access to better yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farming inputs that will boost his harvest. Apart from increasing Usman’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times in net income from selling his maize. Since he first joined Babban Gona in 2015, his happiest memory was sending his children to school. With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Usman is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Usman plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to purchase additional farmland.
