but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Francis' Group's story

This season is not the first one that Francis is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2016 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of eight farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Francis is often described by his community as a very friendly person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. Like many of his fellow farmers, Francis decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to rent more land to cultivate.

This loan will not only help Francis but the whole group, which will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land.
