Adamu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to meet expenses like food and clothing, thereby eliminating pressure to sell corn for low prices at harvest.
Adamu is a maize farmer from Kadanya Biyar village in Kaduna state. Before he became a Babban Gona member, Adamu would have had to sell his maize for low prices soon after harvest in order to meet his immediate cash needs. With this loan and Babban Gona’s support, Adamu can now store his maize at harvest time and sell it a few months later for up to 40% more than the market price at harvest. Adamu, like other members of Babban Gona, intends to use the extra income to expand his farmland, and hopes to become the most profitable farmer in his community.
