Auwal's story

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

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

Auwal needs a Harvest Advance Loan to buy more nutritious foods. The Harvest Advance Loan will provide Auwal with cash equivalent to her value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Auwal to store her maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Auwal as she plans on using the profit from this harvest to purchase additional farmland for a bigger harvest next season.
