Yusuf's story

Yusuf is married and lives in a humble mud house with his wife, children, and mother in a small village in Bauchi, Nigeria. Farming is the primary occupation within his community and like many motivated smallholder farmers, he dreams of expanding his farm business. Yusuf is seeking for a loan to buy high-quality seeds, fertilizers, and herbicides for the planting season to enable him to double last year's yield and consequently increase his income. He plans to use the profits from this season's harvest to pay his children's school fees.

With support from the lenders to grow his farming business, Yusuf looks forward to a generous harvest and feels more empowered to expand his maize farming operations, thereby becoming a successful farmer.
