A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Julius' Group's story

Julius is 36 years old and has 5 children. He has been a farmer for 16 years and is always said to be a very reliable person. Even though Julius is the only person shown in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by 14 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Julius started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2010. He 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader.

Julius’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 7 solar lights.
