Bonface'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.

Bonface's Group's story

Pictured above is Bonface, who, as a group leader, represents his group formed by four farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He is a father to five children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Bonface joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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, Bonface plans to buy a cow.

Between the four farmers in Bonface's Group, a total of 2.5 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 two solar lights.
