Andrew'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 harvest season.

Andrew's Group's story

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

Andrew initially joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program, he says, his life has improved, especially because he has earned more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Andrew plans to send his children to school.

Among the nine farmers in Andrew's Group, a total of 7 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
