Arthur'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.

Arthur's Group's story

Pictured above is Arthur, who, as a group leader, is representing his group of 19 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to six children and is known in his community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Arthur joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. 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, Arthur plans to send his children to school.

Between the 19 farmers in Arthur's Group, a total of 14 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
