$950 to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Pictured above is Andrew, who, as a group leader, is representing his group formed by 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. He is a father to six children and is known by his community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Andrew joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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, Andrew plans to send his children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Andrew's Group, a total of 14.25 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 three solar lights.
