Ishaq's story

Ishaq is a maize farmer from the rural area of Kaduna, a state located in northern Nigeria. He looks forward to earning higher profits from farming. As a member of Babban Gona, Ishaq has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services, which helps to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Ishaq now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the fertilizer education Ishaq receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Ishaq expects to reap 35 bags/hectare or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare, from this year's harvest.

This Harvest Advance loan will provide Ishaq with cash equivalent to the value of his maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Ishaq to store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Ishaq as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to open an agricultural supply shop.
