Didacus' 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.

Didacus' Group's story

Didacus, pictured above, has been a farmer for 12 years and is now proud to represent his group of 20 farmers in Alego District. He is 67 years old, married, and has four children.

He likes to think of himself as a very resourceful person. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 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. Didacus plans to use the profits from this coming season to rent more land to cultivate.

Didacus’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 12.5 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 four solar lights.
