Benson'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.

Benson's Group's story

Benson, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 14 farmers in Lugari District. He is 42 years old, married and has 3 children.

Benson likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Benson plans to use the profits from this coming season to send his children to school.

In total, Benson’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 14.5 acres of land. Given that one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
