A loan helped to buy Saifillahi more nutritious food.

Saifillahi's story

With only one rainy season a 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, Saifillahi 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, he will receive a cash advance equal to the price of his maize crop that allows him to buy more nutritious food while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price.

With his increased income, Saifillahi 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.
