Abdulmuminu's story

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

This Harvest Advance loan will provide Abdulmuminu with a cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Abdulmuminu 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 Abdulmuminu as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to pay his children's school fees.
