Jamin'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.

Jamin's Group's story

Pictured above is Jamin, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by nine farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. He is a father to nine children and is known by his community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Jamin joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Jamin plans to send his children to school.

Between the nine farmers in Jamin's Group, a total of 11.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
