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

A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Evans' Group's story

Evans, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing his group, formed by 12 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He is married and has 2 children.

With a portion of this loan, Evans will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. Evans plans to use the profits he gains this year to rent more land to cultivate and for cattle keeping.

In total Evans’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 3 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 11 solar lights.
