Vitalis' 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, as well as a solar light.

Vitalis' Group's story

Vitalis, pictured above, has seven children and is representing his group, formed by seven farmers in the Alego district, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Vitalis will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. Vitalis plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total, Vitalis’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of three solar lights.
