Christopher's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Christopher's Group's story

Christopher is 71 years old and has nine children. He is often described as a very resourceful person and, as a group leader, Christopher is representing his group of eight farmers in Kimilili District in Kenya. He is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Christopher's desire to have access to the best seed prices. Apart from receiving farming inputs, he is also purchasing a solar light as part of his loan, which is very exciting to him, as he will now be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits that he gains from this year’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

Christopher and his group will receive a total of four solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres.
