A loan helped buy more nutritious foods.


Sani'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, Sani 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, Sani will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows 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, Sani will be able to enjoy a healthier life, and also help out other members of his Trust Group and village to build a more productive community.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
