Khalid's story

Khalid is a hardworking farmer who has the ambition to expand his land under cultivation and earn higher profits from farming.

As a member of Babban Gona, Khalid has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Khalid now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Khalid receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Khalid 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, Khalid needs a Harvest Advance loan to buy more nutritious foods.

This Harvest Advance loan will provide Khalid with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Khalid 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 Khalid as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to purchase additional farmland for a bigger harvest next season.
