Ashafa's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped buy more nutritious foods.
As a member of Babban Gona, Ashafa has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services, which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Ashafa now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Ashafa receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Ashafa expects to reap 40 bags/hectare of maize from this year's harvest, more than double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare. Nonetheless, Ashafa needs a Harvest Advance loan to buy more nutritious foods.
This Harvest Advance loan will provide Ashafa with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Ashafa to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next 6 to 9 months, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial for Ashafa as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to Pay his children's school fees.
