A loan of $400 helps to purchase additional farmland.


Alhaji Ayuba's story

Alhaji Ayuba 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, Alhaji Ayuba has access to high quality inputs and enhanced farming services that help to increase his yields. Furthermore, through training programs, Alhaji Ayuba now practices farming in a more sustainable manner. For example, the agronomy education Alhaji Ayuba receives focuses on micro-dosing fertilizers to lessen environmental impact and increase yields.

Alhaji Ayuba 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, Alhaji Ayuba needs a Harvest Advance loan to to purchase additional farmland to expand his farming operations. This Harvest Advance loan will provide Alhaji Ayuba with the cash equivalent of the value of his maize at harvest. Babban Gona will then help Alhaji Ayuba store his maize and sell it at a higher price over the next six to nine months, guaranteeing higher returns.
