A loan of $700 helps a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.


Enock's Group's story

Pictured above is Enock, who, as a group leader, is representing his group, formed by 14 farmers, in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 8 children and is known by his community to be a very reliable person.

Initially, Enock joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Since he joined the program he says that his life has improved, especially because he has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Enock plans to send his children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Enock's Group, a total of 7.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.

In this group: Enock, Samwel, Janety, Alex, Jane, Joseph, Protus , Noel, Net , Imelda , Teplah, Geoffrey, Beatrice N, Rael


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
