A loan helped to get better healthcare for his family.

Hudu's story

Following Hudu's initial loan request, he is delighted about the prospects that this year's harvest holds. As a hardworking farmer, Hudu further has the ambition to provide his family with better healthcare from the profits of farming. As a member of Babban Gona, Hudu has access to enhanced farming services, which will help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Hudu now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Ismail receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen the environmental impacts and increase his yields. Hudu expects to reap 40 bags/hectare of maize from this year's harvest, more than double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare. Through this loan, known as a Harvest Advance loan, Hudu will receive a cash advance equal to the price of his maize, which will allows him to get better healthcare for his family, while Babban Gona will store his maize to sell in the future at a better price over the next 6 to 9 months, guaranteeing higher returns.
