Laurence'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.
Laurence's Group's story
Laurence is 42 years old and has 3 children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. Laurence has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2014. This decision was largely a result of his desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although he described his last harvest as very good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Laurence also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. Obtaining this loan means that Laurence's Group will be able to receive 1 solar light, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
