Jotham'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.

Jotham's Group's story

Jotham is the leader of his group in Kimilili District, and he is representing 11 farmers, including himself. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for more than 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Jotham decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

Jotham's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 9 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 5 solar lights, as, even though Jotham decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
