A loan helped to purchase additional farmland.

Aliyu's story

Aliyu 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, Aliyu has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services which help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Aliyu now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Aliyu receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields. Aliyu 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, Aliyu needs a Harvest Advance Loan to purchase additional farmland, amongst other things, to expand his farming operations. This Harvest Advance Loan will provide Aliyu with cash equivalent to the value of his 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 loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
