Alice'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.

Alice's Group's story

Alice is 60 years old and has nine children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Sirisia District, Kenya.

Alice has been farming with One Acre Fund for years, having joined the program for the first time in 2009. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Alice also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Alice 's Group will be able to receive a total of ten solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
