A loan helped to complete a modest building for his family.

Adamu's story

Adamu 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, Adamu has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Adamu now practices farming in a more sustainable manner.

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

Adamu however needs a Harvest Advance loan to build a modest house for his family. The Harvest Advance loan will provide Adamu with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Adamu to store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial to Adamu as he plans on using the increased income to complete this project.
