A loan helped to purchase improved farm inputs that will increase farm yield.


Isyaku's story

Isyaku is from Kaduna, Nigeria, a small community where he grows maize to support his wife and children. Maize farming is the primary occupation in his community, and like many other farmers in his region, the income he receives from growing is not sufficient enough to increase his family's living standards.

Isyaku is seeking a loan to purchase high quality seeds, fertilizers, and other necessary inputs for his maize farming operations. He wants to double last year's yield, so he can make more income. Isyaku aims to use the money he receives from his harvest at the end of the season to pay school fees for his children and also to buy books and uniforms for them.

With lenders’ support to grow his farming business, Isyaku is looking forward to a bountiful farming season.
