WHAT THEY DO


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 SUPPORT


We have provided a working capital loan to support Babban Gona as they grow their farmer network.
