Usman's story

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, Usman 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, Usman will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows him to save money towards completing his family home while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price. With his increased income, Usman will be able to enjoy a healthier life, whilst improving the standard of living of his family.
