Leonard'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.

Leonard's Group's story

Leonard is 50 years old and has 9 children. He is often described as a very trustworthy person and, as a group leader, Leonard is representing his group of 9 farmers in Teso District in Kenya. He is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Leonard's desire to earn enough to feed his family. Apart from receiving farming inputs, he is also purchasing a solar light as part of his loan, which is very exciting to him as he will now be able to have light during the dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits that he gains from this year’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

Leonard and his group will receive a total of 3 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
