E Go Better

The series is centered around a farmers cooperative from Plateau State, Nigeria. The main character Mangai has fallen head over toe in love with Azizah. He is a simple potato farmer and carpenter; she the daughter of the village chief. Religion comes on top: He is christian and she muslim.

Financially his group is also not in best shape. Always when they want to sell their produce in the market, it is flooded with potatoes from all over the state and the price drops into the cellar. Under these circumstances Mangai really needs to step up his game to land with his dream girl.

"E Go Better" makes financial literacy fun. The first season is about microfinance with a focus on micro credits. The second season explains the concept of microinsurance including all the rights and obligations involved.
