Ayub'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 as well as a solar light.

Ayub's Group's story

Ayub is a 40-year-old proud father of three children. He is a group leader, often described as a very experienced farmer, and is representing his group of eight farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Ayub has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Ayub described his harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is also very excited to be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce his consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to invest in a business.

With this loan, Ayub’s Group will be able to plant a total of 3.25 acres of land and purchase a total of four solar lights.
