Joshua's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Joshua's Group's story

Joshua is a 52-year-old, proud father of eight children. He is a group leader, often described as a very reliable person, and is representing his group of 16 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Joshua has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Joshua described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Joshua’s Group will be able to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 15 solar lights.
