John'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve his harvest of maize.

John's Group's story

John, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 30 years, and is now proud to represent his group of nine farmers in Bungoma District. He is 54 years old, is married and has 10 children.

John likes to think of himself as a very experienced farmer. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. John plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, John’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
