Sadiya's story

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

This harvest season, Sadiya 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, Sadiya will get crucial harvest support including renting a threshing machine, which will eliminate the common practice of using family labor. This will save her family and her 30 hours of manual labour per 100-kilogram bag of maize, allowing more time for studying for her children. Babban Gona will also support Sadiya by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, Sadiya will not have to forfeit making a profit by selling her maize at low harvest prices.

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