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.

Patrick's Group's story

Pictured above is Patrick, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to 6 children and is known by his community as a very hard-working individual.

Initially, Patrick joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 learned a lot from farming training.

With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Patrick plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Between the 12 farmers in Patrick's Group, a total of 8.75 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 1 solar light.
