Jane'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 a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Jane's Group's story

Jane is 52 years old and has six children. She is the group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Jane has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and, although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Jane also decided to purchase a solar light 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 Jane's Group will be able to receive a total of six solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of seven acres.
