Alex'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 quality fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Alex's Group's story

Alex, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent his group of 8 farmers in Alego District. He is 67 years old, married, and has 3 children.

Alex likes to think of himself as a very experienced farmer. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has learned a lot from farming trainings. Alex plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Alex’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5 acres of land. The group will also receive 3 solar lights.
