Joab's Group's story

Joab, pictured above, has eight children and is representing his group, formed by 20 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

With a portion of this loan, Joab 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. Joab plans to use the profits he gains this year to invest in a business.

In total,Joab’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 11.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 12 solar lights.
