Lazarus' 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 harvest season, as well as a solar light.

Lazarus' Group's story

Lazarus is a proud 38-year-old father of two children. He is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing his group of 13 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Lazarus has noticed that he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Lazarus described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light in addition to fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to light up his home and enable his children to study at night. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to buy chickens.

With this loan, Lazarus’ Group will be able to plant a total of 3.5 acres of land and purchase a total of nine solar lights.
