Joash'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, as well as a solar light.

Joash's Group's story

Joash's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District and is being represented by Joash, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 59 years old and has nine children. Joash has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Joash isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since.

This year, Joash will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Joash's Group will purchase a total of one solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 15.5 acres.
