George'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.

George's Group's story

George is the group leader of his group in Iringa District and he is representing 20 farmers including himself. George joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season but he has been a farmer for 5 years.

Like many other farmers George decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan he will be able to 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 save more money for the future.

George's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 19 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 2 solar lights, as, even though George decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
