Kennedy's 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.

Kennedy's Group's story

Kennedy, pictured above, has been a farmer for 17 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 9 farmers in Teso District. He is 32 years old, married and has 2 children.

Kennedy likes to think of himself as a very reliable person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has learnt a lot from farming trainings. Kennedy plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Kennedy’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan the group will also receive one solar light.
