Abubakar's story

Abubakar is married and lives with his family in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. Abubakar is a hardworking maize farmer who works on his farm every day. This harvest season, Abubakar will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest. It will allow him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Abubakar 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 labour per 100kg bag of maize, allowing his children more time for studying. Babban Gona will also support Abubakar by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now Abubakar does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices. With his loan, Abubakar will be able to pay his children's tuition for a higher quality education in order to secure a high-paying job in the future.
