Joseph'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.

Joseph's Group's story

Joseph's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Joseph, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 45 and has 6 children. Joseph has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Joseph isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2018 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to save more money. This year, Joseph will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer.

Using this loan, Joseph's Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.5 acres.
