Wycliffe'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.

Wycliffe's Group's story

Pictured above is Wycliffe, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by eight farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. He is a father to seven children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Wycliffe joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Wycliffe plans to send his children to school.

Between the eight farmers in Wycliffe's Group, a total of 4.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
