A loan helped to buy more nutritious food for the family.

Salisu'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, Salisu 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, allowing him to buy more nutritious foods while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price. With his increased income, Salisu will enjoy a healthier life and help out other members of his Trust Group and village to build a more productive community.
