Balele's story

Balele is married and lives in a modest mud house in a small village in Bauchi, Nigeria with his wife, children, and mother. Farming is the primary occupation within his group, and he dreams of growing his farm business like many inspired smallholder farmers.

He is looking for a loan for the planting season to buy high-quality seeds, fertilizers, and herbicides to double last year's yield, and consequently increase his income. Balele plans to make use of the income from the harvest of this season to build a better house for his family. With lenders' help to develop his farming business, Balele looks forward to a generous harvest and feels more motivated to expand his maize farming operations and, thus, become a prosperous farmer.
