A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.


Lucy's Group's story

Lucy, pictured, is a group leader and is representing her group, formed by ten farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2010, and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She is married and has four children.

With a portion of this loan, Lucy will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study.

Lucy plans to use the profits she gains this year to invest in a business.

In total, Lucy’s Group will use the farming inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 3.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of eight solar lights.
