Dorine's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to expand and improve farming operations by purchasing a solar light, cost-efficient maize seeds, and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Dorine's Group's story

Dorine is 40 years old and has 7 children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very hardworking individual. Even though Dorine is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Dorine started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2011, and decided to do so because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since then, she has seen her life improve; in fact, ever since she joined, she has had more profits from each harvest. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With the requested loan proceeds, Dorine’s Group would purchase farming inputs to plant a total of 10.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group plan to purchase a solar light (5 total).
