Geofrey'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 increase maize cultivation.

Geofrey's Group's story

Pictured above is Geofrey, who is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 56 years old, and as a group leader, he is representing his group of nine farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. He is married and has four children.

Geofrey is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Geofrey says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2015, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Geofrey will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
