Babban Gona

Mission:  To inspire and enable hardworking smallholder farmers to reach their full potential.

Where they work: Nigeria

Our partnership: We supported Babban Gona with a working capital loan from 2016 to 2018.

Babban Gona means ‘great farmer’ in Hausa, and is an innovative agricultural aggregator in Nigeria. The organisation assists farmers to organise themselves into trust groups (of 3-10 smallholders), and provides them with financing for seeds and inputs, as well as bespoke support and training on agronomy and financial literacy. To ensure access to market, Babban Gona aggregates the harvest, paying the farmers upfront and sharing any future profits.
