Alice's story

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

The Harvest Advance loan will provide Alice with a cash equivalent to her value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Alice with storing her maize and selling it at a higher price in the future, thus guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Alice as she plans on using her profits from this harvest to open an agro-dealer shop.
