Peter'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, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Peter's Group's story

Peter's Group is formed by 8 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Peter, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 28 years old, is married and has 2 children. Peter has been a farmer for 7 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Peter isn’t new to One Acre Fund, as he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to save more money. This year, Peter will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to reduce his consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Peter's Group will purchase a total of 8 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2.25 acres.
