Sanata's story

Sanata is a Babban Gona maize farmer living in Plateau state, Nigeria. Thanks to crop insurance and access to high-quality inputs and services, Sanata 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, 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 Sanata 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.
