Jeralo'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.

Jeralo's Group's story

Jeralo, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent his group of 12 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. He is 57 years old, married and has 4 children.

Jeralo likes to think of himself as a very hard-working individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has gained a lot of respect in his community.

Jeralo plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Jeralo’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8 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 3 solar lights.
