Abdu's story

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

This Harvest Advance loan will provide Abdu with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Abdu 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 Abdu as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to buy a car.
