Sani's story

Sani is a hardworking farmer who has the ambition to expand his land under cultivation and earn higher profits from farming.

As a member of Babban Gona, Sani has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Sani now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Sani receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields.

Sani expects to reap 40 bags/hectare of maize from this year's harvest, more than double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare.

Nonetheless, Sani needs a Harvest Advance loan to open an agro-dealer shop. This Harvest Advance loan will provide Sani with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Sani to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next 6 to 9 months, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial for Sani as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to open an agro-dealer shop.
