A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Benson's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Benson is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2019 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Benson is often described by his community as a very resourceful person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. Like many of his fellow farmers, Benson decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate.

This loan will not only help Benson but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land.
