Joshua'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.

Joshua's Group's story

Pictured above is Joshua, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 7 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to 7 children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Joshua joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to have access to the best seed prices. 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, Joshua plans to save more money for the future.

Among the 7 farmers in Joshua's Group, a total of 5.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
