A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Joseph's Group's story

Pictured above is Joseph, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 62 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of 7 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Joseph is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Joseph says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2016, he has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Joseph will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4 acres. 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 3 solar lights.

In this group: Joseph, Dismas, Orupito, Lilian, Carolyne, Margaret, Roselyne

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
