A loan helped pay children's school fees.

Nicodimos's story

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

This harvest season, he'll receive a cash advance, known as a Harvest Advance Loan, which is equal to the price of maize at harvest, allowing him to meet the costs of pressing needs like paying school fees. Nicodimos 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 labor per 100kg bag of maize, allowing more time for studying for his children. Babban Gona will also support him by storing the harvested maize to sell later in the year so he doesn't forfeit profit by selling maize at low harvest prices.

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

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
