David'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

David's Group's story

David, pictured above, has 5 children and is always described as a very hardworking individual, which is why he was selected to become the leader of his group. David is representing his group of 14 farmers in Kimilili District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

David has been a farmer for 15 years. In order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, he decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. His loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light. He is very happy to be getting the solar light, as that means he will now have light during dark hours so his children will be able to study. With the profits from this coming season, David is planning to send his children to school.

A total of 9 acres will be planted by David's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 12 solar lights.
