Patrick'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.

Patrick's Group's story

Pictured above is Patrick, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. He is a father to 10 children and is known by his community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Patrick joined One Acre Fund in 2011 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Patrick plans to send his children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Patrick's Group, a total of 6.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
