Nathan's story

Nathan is a maize farmer from the rural area of Kaduna, a state located in northern Nigeria. Nathan looks forward to earning high profits from farming.

As a member of Babban Gona, Nathan has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services, which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Nathan now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the fertilizer education Nathan receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Nathan expects to reap 35 bags/hectare, or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare from this year's harvest. Nathan, however, needs a Harvest Advance loan to complete a building project.

The Harvest Advance loan will provide Nathan with cash that is equivalent to the value of his maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Nathan to store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Nathan as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to build a better house for his family
