John's Group's story

John's group is formed by 6 farmers in Lugari District and is being represented by John, pictured above, who is the group leader. He is 47 years old and has 5 children.

John has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer. He isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2017 and, has since noticed his life has changed. More so in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since.

This year, John will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since he will now be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer.
Using this loan, John 's Group will purchase a total of 1 solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 7.5 acres.

In this group: John , Samwel, Edwin, Joseph, Everlyne, Ednah

This loan is special because:
