A loan helped to pay for children's school fees.

Sani's story

Sani is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Damari village who plans to use the proceeds from his farming activities this season to pay for his children’s school fees.

Building on his previous input loan, Sani expects to reap up to 35 bags per hectare of maize, double the national average of 18 bags per hectare in Nigeria.

Babban Gona, Sani’s partner in lifting him and his family out of poverty, will provide Sani with a harvest advance loan, a cash advance equal to the price of maize at harvest.

With the harvest advance loan, Sani does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling all his maize at low harvest prices to middlemen who reap profits without putting in hard work.

As a Babban Gona member, Sani will access critical harvest services that will improve the quality of his produce. Babban Gona will further support Sani by storing his maize at harvest and selling it for up to 40 percent higher than the market price.

With his maize stored, Sani can generate earnings of up to $1,000 per hectare, more than four times the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income.

With this loan and opportunity to benefit from increased income, Sani will be now be able to ensure that his children’s education, a path to their successful future, is secure.
