Silas' 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, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Silas' Group's story

Silas is 22 years old and is often referred to as a really hardworking individual. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Kimilili District, formed by nine farmers, including himself.

Silas has been a farmer for four years and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2014, because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also a solar light in order to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. He decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

With this loan, Silas’s Group will receive a total of 6 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
