Patrick'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 a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Patrick's Group's story

Patrick is 37 years old and has 9 children. He has been a farmer for 18 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Patrick is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 8 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Patrick started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2010, and decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

Patrick’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5 acres of land. Additionally, one farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
