Hadiza'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 to get a good harvest and enhance her family's living standard.

Hadiza's story

Hadiza 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. Like many driven smallholders, Hadiza dreams of scaling her farm business.

Hadiza 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 Hadiza’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 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, Hadiza is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Hadiza plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to purchase additional farmland to expand her maize farming operations.
