but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs and increase his yield.

Tijjani's story

Tijjani is 38 years old, single and lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kaduna State. Farming is the primary occupation in his community, and, like many diligent smallholders, Tijjani dreams of expanding his farm business.

Due to poor farming practices it has become difficult for farmers like Tijjani to achieve high yields so as to make higher income. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Tijjani will be provided with higher yield seeds that are locally adapted and are widely accepted in his local community. He will also receive the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Tijjani to optimize his harvest, thereby attaining yields of up to two times the national average in Nigeria.

With lender support, Tijjani 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.
