A loan helped a member to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Peter's Group's story

Peter is 63 years old and has seven children. He is a group leader and is representing his group of eight farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Peter has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely a result of his desire to have access to quality training and to learn new farming methods. Although Peter described his last harvest as excellent, he believes he could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Peter also decided to purchase a solar light as part of his loan, which he is very excited about, as it will allow him to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Peter's Group will be able to receive a total of seven solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 3.75 acres.

In this group: Peter, Evans, Hellen, Hilda, Andrew, Moses, Moses, Fridah

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
