Peter'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 for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Peter's Group's story

Peter, pictured above, has 7 children and is representing his group, formed by 10 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2010 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

With a portion of this loan, Peter will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that now he will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Peter plans to use the profits he gains this year to buy chickens.

In total, Peter’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
