Julius' Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Julius' Group's story

Julius, pictured above, has seven children and is representing his group, formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

With a portion of this loan, Julius 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. Julius plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total Julius’ Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of five solar lights.
