Sha'aibu's story

Sha'aibu is married and lives with his family in a humble mud house in a small village in Kaduna state.

In his community, farming is the primary occupation and, like many committed smallholders, he dreams of growing his farm business.

Sha'aibu is returning to work with Babban Gona this season because he will get access to better-yielding seeds, fertilizers and other essential farm inputs that will boost his yield.

Apart from increasing Sha'aibu’s yield to ensure that his family never goes hungry, this loan will also help him earn up to three times in net income from selling his maize.

Since he first joined Babban Gona in 2017, his happiest memory was sending his children to school.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Sha'aibu is looking forward to a bountiful harvest.

Sha'aibu 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.
