Agnes' 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 to improve harvests of maize.

Agnes' Group's story

Pictured above is Agnes, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by ten farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya. She is married and the mother to two children, known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Agnes joined One Acre Fund in 2011 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Agnes plans to invest in a business.

Between the ten farmers in Agnes's Group, a total of 5.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
