London stock exchange group features Babban Gona as one of the companies to inspire Africa in 2019

The business operates a franchise model in Northern Nigeria, providing thousands of farmer cooperatives with a full range of services, including finance, training, agricultural inputs and support for harvesting, storage and marketing.
