Timothy'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.

Timothy's Group's story

Timothy's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Timothy, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 60 years old and has eight children. He has been a farmer for four years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

He isn’t new to One Acre Fund. He actually joined the program in 2017 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, Timothy 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Timothy's Group will purchase two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant 6.25 acres.
