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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Ambrose's Group's story

Ambrose is the group leader of his group in Alego District, and he is representing eight farmers, including himself. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for more than 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Ambrose decided to work with One Acre Fund to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program.

He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

Ambrose's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate 5.5 acres of land. They will also receive two solar lights.
