Ukashatu's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to pay children's school fees.
He expects to reap up to 40 bags of maize per hectare, which is double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags per hectare. However, most farmers are forced to sell their produce at extremely low prices during harvest, which coincides with tuition for the second half of the school year. This is because farmers urgently need cash after a long planting and harvesting season. To prevent this, Babban Gona will provide Ukashatu with a Harvest Advance Loan, a cash payment equal to the value of his maize at harvest, to help him pay for his children's school fees.
With his family's increased income, Ukashatu will be able to save for the family's future, thereby eliminating pressure to sell corn for low prices at harvest and increasing farm margins in the long run.
