A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Jeremiah's Group's story

Jeremiah, pictured above, has seven children and is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Jeremiah will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that now he will be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. Jeremiah plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total, Jeremiah’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land. They will also receive one solar light.

In this group: Jeremiah, Belita, Hellen, Hellen , Joyce , Dinah , Carolyne , Dainah, Rodah , Elizabeth
