A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season.

Vincent's Group's story

Vincent, as a group leader, represents 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He's father of five and known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Vincent joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he says his life has improved, especially because he's been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Vincent plans to send his children to school.

Between the farmers in Vincent's Group, a total of 4.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, four of the farmers will purchase a solar light with this loan.
