Cornel'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.

Cornel's Group's story

Pictured above is Cornel, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He is a father to six children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Cornel joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since he joined the program, he says that his life has improved, especially because he has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Cornel plans to send his children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Cornel's Group, a total of 5.5 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 the group will also receive a total of seven solar lights with this loan.
