Lidiah'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Lidiah's Group's story

Pictured above is Lidiah, often described as an extremely reliable person. She is 35 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is married and has 3 children.

Lidiah is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Lidiah says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has learnt a lot from farming trainings, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Lidiah will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 8.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
