Alfred'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.

Alfred's Group's story

Pictured above is Alfred, who, as a group leader, is representing his group of 5 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 12 children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Alfred joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program, his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Alfred plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 5 farmers in Alfred's Group, a total of 4 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, the group will also purchase a total of 1 solar light.
