Steven's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Steven's Group's story

Pictured above is Steven, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 56 years old and has nine children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of eight farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Steven is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place.

Steven says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2018, he has learnt a lot from farming training, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly.

Steven will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 3.5 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
