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

Bashir has applied for a loan. Through this loan, known as a Harvest Advance Loan, Bashir will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows him to complete a building project. In addition, Babban Gona will store his maize to sell in the future at a better price.

With his increased income, Bashir 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.
