Godwin'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.

Godwin's Group's story

Pictured above is Godwin, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 16 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. He is a father of six children and is known by his community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Godwin joined One Acre Fund in 2009 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 been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Godwin plans to buy a cow.

Between the 16 farmers in Godwin's Group, a total of 10 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, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of nine solar lights.
