Andrew'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, as well as a solar light.

Andrew's Group's story

Andrew is a 66-year-old proud father of 4 children. He is a group leader and is often described as a very experienced farmer. He is representing his group of 5 farmers in Alego District.

Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Andrew has noticed that he has had more profits from each harvest. Andrew described his last year's harvest as very good, but he believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund.

He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize seeds, because he will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Andrew’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 4 solar lights.
