Mostafa'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, as well as a solar light.

Mostafa's Group's story

Mostafa is the group leader of his group in Teso District, and he is representing ten farmers, including himself. Mostafa joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 20 years.

Like many other farmers, Mostafa decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer that he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

Mostafa's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 7.75 acres of land.
