A loan helped to pay his medical bills.

Yakubu'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, Yakubu receives crop insurance and access to high quality inputs and services, so he does not have to worry about failed crops or poor harvests.

Now he has applied for a loan. Known as a Harvest Advance loan, Yakubu will receive a cash advance equal to the price of his maize that will allow him to pay his medical bills. In addition, Babban Gona will store his maize to sell in the future at a better price.

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