Hamisu's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to build a better house for the family.
As a member of Babban Gona, Hamisu has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services, which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Hamisu now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the fertilizer education Hamisu receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Hamisu expects to reap 35 bags/hectare, or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare, from this year's harvest. Hamisu however needs a Harvest Advance loan to avoid losing margins by selling his maize at harvest, when prices are low due to the high supply of maize.
The Harvest Advance loan will provide Hamisu with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Hamisu to store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Hamisu as he plans on using the increased income to build a better house for the family.
