A loan helped to access quality farm inputs and services.


Auwal's story

Auwal 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, Auwal dreams of expanding his farm business.

Due to a lack of access to quality inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Auwal to achieve high yields so as to make a higher income.

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

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