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 a 54-year-old proud mother of 5 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in the Kimilili District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Jane has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Jane described her harvest as excellent last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to be able to purchase a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Jane’s Group will be able to plant a total of 9 acres of land and purchase a total of 8 solar lights.
