Idd'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.

Idd's Group's story

Idd is 28 years old and is often described as a very trustworthy person. He has 2 children and is married. As a group leader, Idd is representing his group of 14 farmers in Butere District in Kenya, and is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Idd's desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Apart from receiving farming inputs, he is also purchasing a solar light as part of his loan, which is very exciting to him as he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits that he gains from this year’s harvest, he plans to invest in a business. Idd and his group will receive a total of 11 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.5 acres.
