A loan of $175 helped to buy fertilizers and seed to boost crop productivity and enhance his living standards.


Yas'alu's story

Yas'alu is married and lives with his family in a modest mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many industrious smallholders, he dreams of expanding his farm business.

Yas'alu is returning to work with Babban Gona this season, as he will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield. Apart from increasing Yas'alu’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times his net income from selling his maize. Since he first joined Babban Gona in 2015, his happiest memory was sending his children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Yas'alu is looking forward to an abundant harvest. Yas'alu plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to pay his children's school fees.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
