Ali's story

Ali 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, Ali has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services that help increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Ali now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the fertilizer education Ali receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields.

Currently, it is harvest season. Ali expects to reap 35 bags/hectare, or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare, from this year's harvest. However, he needs a Harvest Advance loan to build a modest house for his family.

This loan will provide Ali with a cash equivalent to the value of his maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Ali store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns.

This timing is crucial to Ali, as he plans on using the increased income to complete his home project.
