Benard'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.

Benard's Group's story

Benard is 37 years old and has 3 children. He is a group leader and is representing his group formed by 13 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Benard has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of his desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods.

Although he described his last harvest as very good, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Benard also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will enable him to have light during the night in order to feel safer.

Obtaining this loan means that Benard's Group will be able to receive a total of 2 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7 acres.
