Zaharaldeen's story

Zaharaldeen 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, he has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Zaharaldeen now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the fertilizer education he receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. He expects to reap 35 bags/hectare, or double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags/hectare, from this year's harvest.

He however needs a Harvest Advance loan to buy a motorcycle to start a transport business. Through the harvest advance loan, he will be provided with the cash equivalent of the harvested maize. Babban Gona will then help him store his maize and sell it at a higher price in the future, guaranteeing higher returns. This is helpful to Zaharaldeen as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to buy a motorcycle.
