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

George's Group's story

George's Group was formed by 10 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by George, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 61 years old and has six children. George has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

George isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, George will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during dark hours so his children are able to study.

Using this loan, George's Group will purchase a total of two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
