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

A loan helped to purchase a solar light, and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Joseph's Group's story

Joseph is a 72-year-old proud father of 6 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hard-working individual, and is representing his group of 8 farmers in the Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2018, Joseph has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Joseph described his harvest as well last year, but 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, because he will now be able to see later in the day. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Joseph's Group will be able to plant a total of 1.125 acres of land and purchase a total of 2 solar lights.
