Peter'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 two solar lights, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve his maize harvests.
Peter's Group's story
Peter's Group is made up of 10 farmers in Kakamega North District and is being represented by Peter, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 39 years old, married, and has one child. Peter has been a farmer for five years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person. Peter isn’t new to One Acre Fund. He actually joined the program in 2013, and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family. This year, Peter will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Using this loan, Peter's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of five acres.
