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

A loan helped to access quality farm inputs and services.

Shapiu's story

Shapiu 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, Shapiu dreams of expanding his farm business. Due to the lack of access to quality inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Shapiu to achieve the high yields needed to make a good income.

Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Shapiu will, because of this loan, be provided with higher-yielding seeds that are locally adapted and 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 Shapiu to optimize his yield, thereby attaining yields of up to 2 times the national average in Nigeria. He is looking forward to a bountiful harvest with lenders' support.

Shapiu plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to access better health care for his family.
