Priscilla'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.

Priscilla's Group's story

Priscilla is 38 years old and is often described as a very experienced farmer. She has 4 children and is married. As a group leader, Priscilla is representing her group of 11 farmers in Teso District in Kenya, and is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Priscilla 's desire to earn enough to feed her family. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

Priscilla and her group will receive a total of 5 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
