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

A loan helped to buy food and clothing, thereby eliminating pressure to sell corn for low prices at harvest.

Usman's story

Usman is a maize farmer from Badamasi village in Kaduna state. Before he became a Babban Gona member, Usman would have had to sell his maize for low prices soon after harvest, to cater for his immediate cash needs. With this loan and Babban Gona’s support, Usman can now store his maize at harvest time and sell it a few months later for up to 40% higher than the market price at harvest. Usman, 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.
