William'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.

William's Group's story

William is 52 years old and has six children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though William is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by eight farmers in Butere District, Kenya.

William started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

William’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land.
