George'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.

George's Group's story

This season is not the first one that George 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 six farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

George is often described by his community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent his group because he was just proposed by the team. Like many of his fellow farmers, George decided he wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed his family and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

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