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

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Joseph's Group's story

Pictured above is Joseph, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 24 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Joseph is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place.

Joseph says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Joseph will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 12 acres.
