Lucas' 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.

Lucas' Group's story

Lucas, pictured above, has been a farmer for 5 years, and is now proud to represent his group of nine farmers in Alego District. He is 57 years old, married and has three children.

Lucas likes to think of himself as a very resourceful person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent his group because he was just proposed by team. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has had more profits from each harvest. Lucas plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy chicken.

In total, Lucas’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 2.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
