Samuel's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Samuel's Group's story

Samuel, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 10 farmers in Matete District. He is 66 years old, is married and has 8 children.

Samuel 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 be more active in his community. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to save more money. Samuel plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair his home.

In total, Samuel’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.5 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 5 solar lights.
