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

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

Andrew's Group's story

Pictured above is Andrew, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He is a father of 10 children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Andrew joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to access the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Andrew plans to send his children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Andrew's Group, a total of 10 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
