Lidiya's story

Lidiya is a maize farmer, who is married and lives with her husband and children in a small village in Kaduna. Her village is a small community where farming is the primary occupation. Lidiya dreams that one day her children will grow up to be medical doctors and lecturers.

Using her last input loan from Babban Gona, Lidiya gained access to high-quality farm inputs, and now expects a bountiful harvest.

As a Babban Gona member, Lidiya will now receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing her with a cash advance. She will use this loan to pay her children’s school fees and secure their future. Additionally, Babban Gona will support Lidiya by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, she does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling her maize at low harvest prices.

Lidiya notes that working with Babban Gona has improved her life considerably by providing her with a holistic agricultural package and wide support network. Lidiya can now generate earnings significantly above the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income and secure her family’s future.
