Ismail's story

Ismail is married and lives with his family in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. Ismail is a hardworking maize farmer and hopes that his five children will do well in the future.

This harvest season, Ismail will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest. It allows him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Ismail will get crucial harvest support, including renting a threshing machine, which will eliminate the common practice of using family labor. This will save him and his family 30 hours of manual labour per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for studying and learning for his five children. Babban Gona will also support Ismail by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year.

Now, Ismail does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices. With his loan, Ismail will be able to pay his five children’s tuition for a higher quality education in order to secure high-paying jobs in the future.
