Faruk's story

Faruk returned to his village in Kaduna, Nigeria, a few years ago after losing his job to begin maize farming. Like many other farmers in his community, the income he earns from cultivating is not sustainable enough to improve his family’s standard of living.

Faruk is requesting a loan to buy better-yielding seeds, fertilizers, and other important agricultural inputs that will improve his farming operations and boost his yield, thus enabling him to generate earnings of up to three times the average Nigerian farmer's annual income. He aims to use the profit from his harvest to buy additional farmland.
