Tukur's story

Following Tukur's initial loan request, he has been able to purchase improved inputs and he is delighted at the prospects.

As a hardworking farmer, Tukur also has the ambition to provide his family with better healthcare from the profits of farming. As a member of Babban Gona, Tukur has access to enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Tukur now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Tukur receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Tukur expects to reap 40 bags/hectare of maize from this year's harvest, more than double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare.

This Harvest Advance loan will provide Tukur with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Tukur to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next six to nine months, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial for Tukur, as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to get better healthcare for his family.
