A loan helped to purchase farm inputs.
Ousmanou is a young man of 23 who is married and the father of a three-day-old newborn who doesn't yet attend school.
Ousmano has been farming for more than two years in a small village in the countryside. He grows beans and understands his business very well. The business is going well, but Ousmano owns more land than he can afford to farm. As a result, he is requesting this loan in order to purchase fertilizer, insecticide, etc. so that he can better farm his land and earn more of a profit. It's thanks to this business that Ousmano can care for his family and its future.
This loan is special because:
It gives farmers access to crucial financing when they need it the most.
