Looca's story

Looca is a Babban Gona maize farmer living in rural northern Nigeria. Thanks to crop insurance and access to high-quality inputs and services, Looca and his children do not have to worry about failed crops or poor harvests. He expects to reap up to 40 bags of maize per hectare, which is double the national Nigerian average of 18 bags of maize per hectare.

However, since most farmers are forced to sell their produce at extremely low prices during the harvest period coinciding with time for tuition payment for the second half of the school year. To prevent this, Babban Gona will provide Looca with a Harvest Advance Loan, a cash payment equal to the value of his maize at harvest, to help him pay his children's school fees.
