Alhaji's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to delay the sale of his maize harvest until prices rise, which will allow him to pay his children's school fees.
This harvest season, Alhaji will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of his maize at harvest, and allows him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Alhaji 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 labor per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for his children to study.
Babban Gona will also support Alhaji by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Accordingly, Alhaji will not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices. With his loan, Alhaji will be able to pay his children's tuition for a higher quality education, in order to secure them higher-paying jobs in the future.
