Anet'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, as well as a solar light.

Anet's Group's story

Anet, pictured above, has 5 children and is always described as a very hardworking individual, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Anet is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kimilili District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Anet has been a farmer for 7 years and, in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this coming season, Anet is planning to send her children to school.

A total of 9.5 acres will be planted by Anet's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 8 solar lights.
