Hezron's Group's loan finished fundraising,
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.

Hezron's Group's story

Pictured above is Hezron, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by three farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to six children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Hezron joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Hezron plans to send his children to school.

Among the three farmers in Hezron's Group, a total of 1.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
