A loan helped to pay children's school fees.


Salisu's story

Salisu is married and lives with his family in a remote village in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna. Salisu is a hardworking maize farmer who works on his farm every day.

This harvest season, Salisu will receive a cash advance, known as a harvest advance loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest. This will allow him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Furthermore, Salisu will get crucial harvest support including renting a threshing machine, which will eliminate the common practice of using family labor. This will save him and his family 30 hours of manual labour per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for studying for his children. Babban Gona will also support Salisu by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year. Now Salisu does not have to forfeit making a profit by selling his maize at low harvest prices.

With his loan, Salisu will be able to pay his children's tuition for a higher-quality education in order to secure high-paying jobs in the future.


This loan is special because:
