Ubaida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.
Ubaida 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 and, like many driven smallholders, Ubaida dreams of scaling up her farm business. Ubaida 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 Ubaida’s yield to ensure that her family never goes hungry, this loan will also help her earn up to 3 times her 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, Ubaida is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. Ubaida plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to purchase additional farmland so as to expand her maize farming operations
