A loan helped a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.


Evans' Group's story

Pictured above is Evans, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He is a father to 12 children, and is known by his community as a very experienced farmer.


Initially, Evans 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 been able to consistently feed his family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Evans plans to send his children to school.


Between the 10 farmers in Evans's Group, a total of six 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 one solar light.

In this group: Evans, Gladys , Jane, Emilly, Sifurosa , Fatuma, Stellah, Celine, Joselyne, Mary
