A loan helped to open an agro-dealer shop.


Mustapha's story

Mustapha 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, Mustapha has access to high-quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Mustapha now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Mustapha receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Mustapha 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, Mustapha needs a Harvest Advance loan to open an agro-dealer shop. This Harvest Advance loan will provide Mustapha with cash equivalent to his value of maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Mustapha to store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next six to nine months, guaranteeing higher returns.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
