A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Peter's Group's story

Peter is the group leader of his group in Alego District, and he is representing eight farmers, including himself. Peter joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for more than 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Peter decided to work with One Acre Fund to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

Peter's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 3.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of one solar light, as, even though Peter decided not to, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
