A loan helped to complete a building project.


Yahuza's story

Yahuza 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, Yahuza has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields.

Furthermore, through training programs, he now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education he receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Yahuza 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, Yahuza needs a Harvest Advance loan to complete a building project. This Harvest Advance loan will provide him with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help him to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next 6 to 9 months, guaranteeing higher returns. This is crucial for Yahuza, as he plans on using the profits from this harvest to pay his children's school fees.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
