Peter'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 a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve his harvests of maize.

Peter's Group's story

Peter is 58 years old and is often referred to as a really experienced farmer. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Teso District, formed by 12 farmers, including himself.

Peter has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2017 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also a solar light in order to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. He decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

With this loan, Peter’s Group will receive a total of 2 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 3.75 acres.
