A loan helped to pay his children's school fees.


Adamu'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, Adamu receives crop insurance and access to high-quality inputs and services, so he does not have to worry about failed crops or poor harvests.

With this loan, known as a Harvest Advance loan, Adamu will receive a cash advance, equal to the price of his maize, that allows him to pay his children's school fees while Babban Gona stores his maize to sell in the future at a better price. With his increased income, Adamu will be able to enjoy a healthier life, while also sending his children to school.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
