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.

In 2016  Babban Gona supported over 8,000 farmers.


Our partnership: We have supported Babban Gona since 2016 with a working capital loan.
