Charity's story

Charity is a Babban Gona maize farmer living in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. As part of her harvest services loan package, Charity will get crucial harvest support, including renting a threshing machine, which will eliminate the common practice of using family labor. This will save her family 30 hours of manual labor per 100 kg bag of maize, which will leave more time for studying and increase literacy rates. Charity hopes that her children will be educated.

Through this loan, known as a harvest advance loan, Charity will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of maize at harvest, that allows her to meet the costs of pressing needs while Babban Gona stores her corn to sell in the future at a better price, for up to 40% higher than the market price. With her family's increased income, Charity will be able to pay children's school fees for a higher quality education.
