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

Habbakuk's Group's story

Habbakuk, pictured above, has six children and is representing his group, formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

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

In total Habbakuk’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 9.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of five solar lights.

In this group: Habbakuk, Brenda Tata, Mary Tata, Elizabeth Ebiri, John, Masete Titus, Jael Ekakoro, Anne, Cathrine, Emmanuel, Margaret, Ritah

This loan is special because:

It provides smallholder farmers with seeds and supplies at the planting season.
