A loan helped to pay his children's school fees through a harvest advance loan.


Alhassan's story

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

This harvest season, Alhassan will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest, that allows him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees.

Furthermore, Alhassan 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 studying for his children.

Babban Gona will also support Alhassan by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now, Alhassan does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

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