Tina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to access quality farm inputs and services.

Tina's story

Tina lives with her family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Plateau state. In her community, farming is the primary occupation. Like many diligent smallholders, Tina dreams of expanding her farm business. Due to a lack of access to quality inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Tina to achieve high yields and as a result a lower income.

As a Babban Gona member, Tina's loan will provide her with higher-yielding seeds that are locally adapted and widely accepted in her local community. She will also have access to the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on a field assessment.

This will enable Tina to optimize her yield and attain yields of up to twice the national average in Nigeria. She is looking forward to a bountiful harvest with lenders' support to her farming business. Tina plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to buy additional farmland.
