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

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Edwin's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Edwin is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a couple of years now, having joined the program in 2019. Although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of eight farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Edwin is often described by his community as a very reliable person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. Like many of his fellow farmers, Edwin decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, and he hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate.

This loan will not only help Edwin but the whole group, who will receive enough maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land.
