Daniel'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 fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as two solar lights.

Daniel's Group's story

Daniel, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing his group, formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He is married and has 3 children.

With a portion of this loan, Daniel will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also two solar lights. Receiving two solar lights as part of his loan means that now he will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Daniel plans to use the profits he gains this year to buy a cow.

In total Daniel’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 14 solar lights.
