Fredrick'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 two solar lights and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Fredrick's Group's story

Fredrick, pictured above, has 2 children and is always described as a very experienced farmer, which is why he was selected to become the leader of his group. Fredrick is representing his group of 10 farmers in Alego District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Fredrick has been a farmer for 5 years and, in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, he decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. His loan will not only include farming inputs but also two solar lights, which he is very happy to be getting as that means he will now have light during the night in order to feel safer. With the profits from this coming season, Fredrick is planning to invest in a business.

A total of 4.75 acres will be planted by Fredrick's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 3 solar lights.
