Abdulkadir's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy more nutritious foods.
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, Abdulkadir receives crop insurance and access to high quality inputs and services, so he does not have to worry about failed crops or poor harvests. Through this loan, known as a harvest advance loan, Abdulkadir will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows him to buy more nutritious foods while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price. With his increased income, Abdulkadir will be able to enjoy a healthier life, and also help out other members of his Trust Group and village to build a more productive community.
