Many farmers in Zamfara State are to benefit from an irrigation loan scheme introduced by the government.

The scheme, due to start in November, is expected to revitalise the Bakalori irrigation project and will be rolled-out under the supervision of the Zamfara Comprehensive Agricultural Revolution Programme (ZACAREP).

Farmers will be organised into cooperative groups, of no less than 20 people, to ease the allocation of loans. Every group will have to put down a deposit of one quarter of the total loan they require.
