Abdulmutalib'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 get a good harvest and enhance his family's living standards.

Abdulmutalib's story

Abdulmutalib is married and lives with his family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna State. Farming is the primary occupation in his community, and, like many committed smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm.

Abdulmutalib is returning to work with Babban Gona this season as he will get access to better yield seeds, fertilizers and other essential farming inputs that will boost his harvest. Apart from increasing Abdulmutalib’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, Abdulmutalib's happiest memory was sending his children to school.

With lenders’ support, Abdulmutalib is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to purchase additional farmland.
