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

Henry's Group's story

Henry is 57 years old and has five children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Henry is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by six farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Henry started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, he decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

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