A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Nicholas' Group's story

Nicholas is 29 years old and has two children. He has been a farmer for 12 years and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Nicholas is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by seven farmers in Alego District, Kenya.

Nicholas started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2014. He decided to do so because he wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, he has seen his life improve, especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year he decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

Nicholas’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of four acres of land. 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: Nicholas, Jackline, George, Kevin, Kennedy, Stephen, Claris

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
