Ashiru'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.

Ashiru's story

Ashiru lives with his family in an ordinary mud house in a small village in Kano state. In his community, farming is the primary occupation and like many diligent smallholders, Ashiru dreams of expanding his farm business.

Due to a lack of access to quality inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Ashiru to achieve the high yields needed to make a good income.

Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Ashiru 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 Ashiru 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 to his farming business.

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