David's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

David's Group's story

Pictured above is David, who is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 25 years old and represents his group of 12 farmers as a group leader in Lugari District, Kenya.

David is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund so he will have access to quality training and learn new farming methods, which is why he decided to join in the first place. David says that he is happy to have made that decision because since he first joined in 2018, he has been able to save more money, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. David will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 3.5 acres. 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 9 solar lights.
