Daniel's story

Daniel is married and lives with her family in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. Daniel is a hardworking maize farmer who works on her farm every day.

This harvest season, Daniel will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest, that allows her to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Daniel will get crucial harvest support, including renting a threshing machine, which will eliminate the common practice of using family labor. This will save her and her family 30 hours of manual labour per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for studying for her children.

Babban Gona will also support Daniel by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, Daniel does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling her maize at low harvest prices. With her loan, Daniel will be able to pay her children's tuition for a higher quality educationto secure high-paying jobs in the future.
