Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Alhasan's story

Alhasan is a 37-year-old farmer from Gidan Kwabo Wambai. As a Babban Gona member, Alhasan is excited about the opportunity to finally have access to credit, good markets and a trained agronomist. Like all Babban Gona members, Alhasan can earn up to $2000/ha this season from growing maize, more than three times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income. The average Babban Gona farmer yields 30 bags/hectare, double the national average of 14. However, Alhasan is ambitious and is aiming to reap 35 bags per hectare this season. When asked, Alhasan said “I plan to use the money I make to expand my farmland. In 5 years, I want to ensure my children are educated and have professional jobs.” With this loan, Alhasan is on his way to achieving this dream.
