Simon'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 to improve harvests of maize.

Simon's Group's story

Simon, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 14 farmers in Sirisia District. He is 41 years old, married, and has ten children.

Simon likes to think of himself as a very trustworthy person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Simon plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Simon’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 18.75 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
