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

Gabriel's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Gabriel is working alongside One Acre Fund. He has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015 and, although he is the only person featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group of 14 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Gabriel is often described by his community as a very trustworthy person and decided to be the one to represent his group because he was proposed by team. Like many of his fellow farmers, Gabriel decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send his children to school.

This loan will not only help Gabriel but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.25 acres of land.
