Ashiru's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase improved inputs in order to get a good harvest and enhance his living standards.

Ashiru's story

Ashiru 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, but like many other farmers in his region, the income he receives from growing is insufficient to increase his family's living standards.

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

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