John's Group's story

John is a 55-year-old proud father of eight children. He is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing his group of 15 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, John has noticed that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

John 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, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

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