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.

Morris' Group's story

Pictured above is Morris, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. He is 56 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 11 farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Morris is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to earn enough to feed his family, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Morris says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2020, he has learnt a lot from farming trainings, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Morris will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.75 acres. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
