A loan of $325 helps to purchase improved inputs to get a good harvest and enhance his family's living standards.


Sagir's story

Sagir, who is 38 year old, is single and 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, Sagir dreams of expanding his farm business.

Due to lack of access to quality inputs, it has become difficult for farmers like Sagir to achieve high yields to make higher income. Luckily, as a Babban Gona member, Sagir will, because of this loan, be provided with higher-yielding seeds that are locally adapted. He will also have the recommended pesticides and fertilizers based on the results of his field assessment. This will enable Sagir to optimize his yield and attain yields of up to 2 times the national average in Nigeria.

With lenders' support to grow his farming business, Sagir is looking forward to a bountiful harvest. He plans to use the profits from this season’s harvest to access better health facilities for his family.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
