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

Salome's Group's story

Salome is 45 years old and has 10 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Salome has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2009. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds 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. Salome also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Salome's Group will be able to receive a total of 13 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
