Godfry's Group

Chwele, Bungoma County, Kenya / Agriculture

Godfry'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 the next harvesting season.

Godfry's Group's story

Godfry is 43 years old and has eight children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Godfry has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2009. This decision was largely as a result of his desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods.

Although he described his last harvest as very good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Godfry also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Godfry's Group will be able to receive a total of six solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 8.5 acres.
