Francis' 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.

Francis' Group's story

Francis, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 12 farmers in Lugari District. He is 44 years old, is married and has four children.

Francis likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 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 been able to consistently feed his family. Francis plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Francis’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 12.75 acres of land. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, so this loan, the group will receive three solar lights.
