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

Alex's Group's story

Alex is the leader of his group of 11 farmers in Alego District. Alex joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 12 years.

Like many other farmers, Alex decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to gain access to the highest-quality fertilizers and hybrid seeds. 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 who have doubled their harvests in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to repair his home.

Alex's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 6.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 4 solar lights because, even though Alex decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
