Florence'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 seed and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Florence's Group's story

Florence is 58 years old and has eight children. She is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Florence has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods. 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.

Florence also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan. She is very excited about the solar lights which will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Florence's Group will be able to receive a total of six solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7.25 acres.
