Alex'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.

Alex's Group's story

Alex, pictured above, has been a farmer for 9 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 5 farmers in Alego District. He is 23 years old, married and has 2 children.

Alex likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he was just proposed by team. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to save more money. Alex plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair his home.

In total, Alex’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3 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 a total of 1 solar light.
