Mansur's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.
Mansur, who is 38 years of age, is 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, Mansur dreams of expanding his farm business. Due to lack of access to quality inputs it has become difficult for farmers like Mansur to achieve high yields and to make higher income. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Mansur will thanks to 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 Mansur 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, Mansur is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to build a better house for his family
