Hezron'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 harvest season.

Hezron's Group's story

Pictured above is Hezron, a group leader representing his group formed by 15 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to 9 children and is known by his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Hezron joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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 harvest season, Hezron plans to send his children to school.

The 15 farmers in Hezron's Group will plant a total of 11.5 acres of land using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a total of 4 solar lights.
