Umar's story

Umar is married and lives in a humble mud house with his wife and children in a small village in Kano, Nigeria. Farming is the primary occupation within his community and, like many motivated smallholder farmers, he dreams of expanding his farm business.

He is seeking a loan to buy high-quality seeds, fertilizer, and herbicides for the planting season to enable him to double last year's yield and consequently increase his income. He plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to open an agro-dealer shop to diversify his income.

With support from lenders to grow his farming business, Umar looks forward to a generous harvest and feels more empowered to expand his maize farming operations, thereby becoming a successful farmer.
