Abdurrashid's story

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

As a member of Babban Gona, Abdurrashid has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services, which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Abdurrashid now practices farming in a more sustainable manner.

For example, the fertilizer education Abdurrashid receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Abdurrashid expects to reap 35 bags/hectare, or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare from this year's harvest.

The Harvest Advance loan will provide Abdurrashid with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Abdurrashid to store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns.

This is crucial to Abdurrashid as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to to open an agro-dealer shop.
