Ali's story

Ali is from Kaduna, Nigeria, a small community where he grows maize to support his wife and children. Maize farming is the primary occupation in his community, and like many other farmers in his region, the income he receives from growing is not sufficient to increase his family's living standards.

Ali is seeking a loan to purchase high quality seeds, fertilizers and other necessary inputs for his maize farming operations. He wants to double last year's yield so he can make more income.

Ali aims to use the money he receives from his harvest at the end of the season to pay school fees for his children and also to buy books and uniforms for his children.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Ali is looking forward to a bountiful farming season.
