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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Luke's Group's story

Pictured above is Luke, often described as an extremely hard-working individual. He is 42 years old and has six children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 10 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Luke is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Luke says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2014, he has learned a lot from farming trainings, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 9.25 acres. Luke will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.
