A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seed and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Hesborne's Group's story

Hesborne is 44 years old and has two children. He is a group leader representing 14 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Hesborne has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program in 2012. This decision was largely a result of his desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seed. Although he described his last harvest as good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Hesborne also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Hesborne's Group will be able to receive a total of nine solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
