Andrew'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 fertiliser for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Andrew's Group's story

Andrew, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing his group, formed by 16 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He is married and has 3 children.

With a portion of this loan, Andrew will not only purchase maize seeds and fertiliser 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Andrew plans to use the profits he gains this year to repair his home.

In total Andrew’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 11.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 9 solar lights.
