Joseph'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.

Joseph's Group's story

Pictured above is Joseph, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to eight children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Joseph joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Joseph plans to send his children to school.

Between the nine farmers in Joseph's Group, a total of 5.5 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 five solar lights.
