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


Postine's Group's story

Postine, pictured above, has eight children and is representing his group, formed by 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to be more active in his community.

With a portion of this loan, Postine 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. Postine plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total, Postine’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of seven acres of land. They will also receive a total of six solar lights.

In this group: Postine, Jacklyne, Carolyne, Gilbert, Irine, Job , Judith , Mary, Jackline, Joseph, Sainabu, Vicorine , Japheth, Tecla


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
