Gabriel'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Gabriel's Group's story

Gabriel is the group leader of his group in Teso District, and he is representing 14 farmers, including himself. Gabriel joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 10 years.

Like many other farmers, Gabriel decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

Gabriel's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 11.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of two solar lights, as, even though Gabriel decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
