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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Julius' Group's story

Julius, pictured above, has been a farmer for 15 years, and is now proud to represent his group of five farmers in Lugari District. He is 40 years old, married and has two children.

Julius likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Julius plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Julius’ Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
