A loan helped to purchase additional farmland.


Badamasi's story

Following Badamasi's initial input loan request, he gained access to recommended pesticides and fertilizers and applied them on his field, aiming to optimize his yield.

Furthermore, through training programs, Badamasi now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Badamasi receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields.

Badamasi 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, Badamasi needs a Harvest Advance loan to capture greater margins on his maize instead of selling the grain at harvest, when prices are low due to the high supply of maize. This Harvest Advance loan will provide Badamasi with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest.

Babban Gona will then help Badamasi 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 Badamasi, as he plans on using the increased income to purchase additional farmland for a bigger harvest next season.
