Idris's story

Idris is married and lives in a modest mud house in a small village in Kaduna, Nigeria with his wife, children and mother. Farming is the primary occupation within his village and he dreams of growing his farm business like many inspired smallholder farmers. Idris is looking for a loan for the planting season to buy high-quality seeds, fertilizers and herbicides to double last year's yield, and consequently increase his income. Idris plans to make use of the income from the harvest of this season to purchase additional farmland for a bigger harvest next season.

With lenders' help to develop his farming business, Idris looks forward to a generous harvest and feels more motivated to expand his maize farming operations and thus become a prosperous farmer.


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers and helps them increase yields.
