but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Justus' Group's story

Pictured above is Justus, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to 5 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Justus joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has learnt alot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Justus plans to send his children to school.

Between the 13 farmers in Justus's Group, a total of 8.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizers received with the loan.
