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

A loan helped to purchase two solar lights and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Clare's Group's story

Clare is 62 years old and has 6 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Clare has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Clare also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan, which she is very excited about as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Clare's Group will be able to receive a total of 4 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres.
