Joseph's 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.

Joseph's Group's story

Joseph, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. He is married and has four children.

With a portion of this loan, Joseph 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. Joseph plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total Joseph’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 9 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
