William'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.

William's Group's story

Pictured above is William, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to seven children and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, William joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. 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, William plans to send his children to school.

Between the nine farmers in William's Group, a total of 8.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light with this loan, so the group will also receive one solar light.
