Irimiya's story

Irimiya is 28 years of age, single and lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and like many diligent smallholders, Irimiya dreams of expanding his farm business. Due to lack of access to quality inputs it has become difficult for farmers like Irimiya to achieve high yields, so as to make higher income. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Irimiya will because of this loan be provided with higher yielding seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Irimiya to optimize his yield thereby attaining yields of up to 2 times the national average in Nigeria. With lenders support to grow his farming business, Irimiya is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season?s harvest to purchase additional farmland, so as to expand his maize farming operations
