A loan helped to buy seed and fertiliser.

Issa's story

This member has just profited from his first loan with this project. Issa is 35 years old and is married with three children, including one daughter. He has been a farmer, following rain-fed agriculture, for several years and has a wealth of experience in this sector. He grows groundnuts, millet and maize during the winter months.

With his new loan Issa plans to buy groundnut seed and fertiliser which he will use on the farm over winter. He will sell the ensuing harvest at a good profit a few months later. The profits generated from this activity will allow him to build up his savings, as well as meeting his other commitments.
