Patrick'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, as well as a solar light.

Patrick's Group's story

Patrick's Group is made up of 12 farmers in the Alego District. It is being represented by Patrick, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 65 years old and has 7 children. Patrick has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Patrick isn’t new to One Acre Fund. He actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Patrick will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Patrick's Group will purchase a total of 8 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
