Shadrack'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, as well as a solar light.

Shadrack's Group's story

Shadrack, pictured above, has eight children and is representing a group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Shadrack will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that he will be able to have light during the night for his children to be able to study. Shadrack plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total, Shadrack’s group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 10.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of two solar lights.
