Christopher'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.

Christopher's Group's story

Christopher, group leader, is representing 10 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He's a father to 10 children and known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Christopher joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since he joined the program, he says his life has improved, especially because he's been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Christopher plans to send his children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Christopher's Group, a total of 3¼ acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, the group will receive seven solar lights.
