Sani's story

Sani is married and lives with his family in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. He's a hardworking maize farmer who works on his farm every day.

This harvest season, Sani will receive a cash advance ─ known as a harvest advance loan, equal to the price for maize at harvest ─ that allows him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. He'll also 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 labor per 100kg bag of maize, allowing his children more time for study. Babban Gona will also support Sani by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Thus, he doesn't have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

With his loan, Sani will be able to pay his children's tuition for a higher quality education in order to secure high-paying jobs in the future.
