John'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 harvesting season as well as a solar light.

John's Group's story

John is a 58-year-old proud father of two children. He is a group leader, often described as a very experienced farmer, and is representing his group of 5 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, John has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

John described his harvest as good last year but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, John’s Group will be able to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land and purchase 1 solar light.
