Zonkwa's story

Zonkwa is a 35 years old farmer who has the ambition to expand his land under cultivation and earn higher profits from farming. As a member of Babban Gona, he has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields.

Zonkwa 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, he needs a Harvest Advance loan, which will provide him with the cash equivalent of his value of maize at harvest.

Babban Gona will then help store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next 6 to 9 months, guaranteeing higher returns. Through this, Zonkwa can open an agro-dealer shop as he desires and diversify his source of income.
