A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.


Aidani's Group's story

Aidani is the group leader of his group in Wanging ombe District, and he is representing 13 farmers, including himself. He is married and a proud father of four children. Aidani joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for 19 years.

Like many other farmers, Aidani decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to earn enough to send his children to school. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

Aidani's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 17 acres of land.

In this group: Aidani, Asha, Furaha, Yusuph, Fatuma, Amidu, Fatna, Mwashaba, Sikitu, Hassan, Shela, Zera, Sada


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
