Yusuf's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.
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, Yusuf 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, Yusuf will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows him to pay his children's school fees while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price. With his increased income, Yusuf will be able to enjoy a healthier life, whilst also sending his children to school.
