Isiyaku's story

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

This harvest season, Isiyaku will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan. This loan is equal to the price of maize at harvest, and it allows him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Isiyaku 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 labour per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for his children to study. Babban Gona will also support Isiyaku by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. In this way Isiyaku will not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

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