Gerald's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Gerald's Group's story

Pictured above is Gerald, often described as an extremely friendly person. He is 26 years old and, as a group leader, he is representing his group of 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Gerald is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place.

Gerald says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2017, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly.

Gerald will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.25 acres.
