Bala's story

Bala is a maize farmer who is married and lives with his wife and children in a small village in Kaduna. This is a small community where farming is the primary occupation. Bala dreams that one day his children will grow up to be civil servants.

Using his last input loan from Babban Gona, Bala gained access to high-quality farm inputs, and now expects a bountiful harvest.

As a Babban Gona member, Bala will now receive a Harvest Advance loan, providing him with a cash advance. He will use this loan to pay his children’s school fees and secure their future. Additionally, Babban Gona will support Bala by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now he does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

Bala notes that working with Babban Gona has improved his life considerably by providing him with a holistic agricultural package and wide support network. Bala can now generate earnings significantly above the average Nigerian farmer’s annual income and secure his family’s future.
