A loan helped buy more nutritious foods.

Aisha's story

With only one rainy season per year in northern Nigeria, maintaining healthy and nutritious food supplies year round or during periods of drought can be challenging for farmers.

Luckily, as a Babban Gona maize farmer, Aisha receives crop insurance and access to high-quality inputs and services, so she does not have to worry about failed crops or poor harvests. Through this loan, known as a harvest advance loan, Aisha will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of her maize, that allows her to buy more nutritious foods while Babban Gona stores her maize to sell in the future at a better price.

With her increased income, Aisha will be able to enjoy a healthier life, and also help out other members of her Trust Group and village to build a more productive community.
