A loan helped to buy more nutritious foods.

Munkaila's story

Munkaila is a hardworking farmer who has the ambition to expand his land under cultivation and earn higher profits from farming.

As a member of Babban Gona, Munkaila has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields.

Furthermore, through training programs, Munkaila now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Munkaila receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields.

Munkaila 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, Munkaila needs a Harvest Advance loan to buy more nutritious foods. This Harvest Advance loan will provide Munkaila with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest.

Babban Gona will then help Munkaila to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next six to nine months, guaranteeing higher returns.

This is crucial for Munkaila, as he plans on using the profit from this harvest to purchase additional farmland for a bigger harvest next season.

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
