but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Stephen's Group's story

Pictured above is Stephen, who is often described as an extremely experienced farmer. He is 80 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, he is representing 12 farmers from Alego District, Kenya.

Stephen is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. He says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2019, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Stephen will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights with this loan.
