Sunday'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 living standards.
Sunday is a 38 years old hardworking maize farmer who lives in a modest mud house with his wife and 2 children in a small village in Kaduna state. Now that he is a Babban Gona member, Sunday will, because of this loan, be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted, and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Sunday to optimize his yield, where he can attain yields of up to 3.8 metric tonnes per hectare, 2 times the national average in Nigeria. This will not only increase his income earnings 2.8 times the national average but also ensures that Sunday can continue to provide for his family. Sunday will use the income generated from his maize sales this season to build a better house for his family. Sunday is confident that with Babban Gona he will overcome poverty, securing a strong future for generations to come.
