Josephine'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 harvest season.

Josephine's Group's story

Pictured above is Josephine, who is a group leader representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very hard-working individual.

Initially, Josephine joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Josephine plans to send her children to school.

Between the 6 farmers in Josephine's Group, a total of 2.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
