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 60 years old and has 5 children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 8 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Patrick has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of his desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and, although he described his last harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Patrick also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to have an overall improved quality of life.

Obtaining this loan means that Patrick's Group will be able to receive a total of 4 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
