Timothy'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.

Timothy's Group's story

Timothy is 27 years old and has three children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 16 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Timothy has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of his desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although he described his last harvest as very good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. As part of his loan, Timothy also decided to purchase a solar light, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Timothy's Group will be able to receive a total of 10 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 12.75 acres.
