Vincent'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.

Vincent's Group's story

Vincent is 71 years old and has eight children. He is a group leader, and is representing his group formed by 14 farmers from Sirisia District, Kenya.

Vincent has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely as a result of his desire to have access to the best seed prices. 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. Vincent 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 light during the night, in order to feel safer.

Obtaining this loan means that Vincent's Group will be able to receive a total of 11 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 12 acres.
