Pamela'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.

Pamela's Group's story

Pictured above is Pamela, often described as an extremely trustworthy person. She is 27 years old, and as a group leader, she is representing her group of 15 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is married and has two children.

Pamela is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Pamela says that she is happy to have made that decision, because since she first joined in 2013, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Pamela will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.25 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 nine solar lights.
