A loan of $175 helped to purchase improved inputs to get a good yield and earn more money.


Abdullahi's story

Abdullahi 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.

Abdullahi 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 Abdullahi’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, Abdullahi is looking forward to an abundant harvest. Abdullahi 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.
