Selina'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.

Selina's Group's story

Selina is 52 years old and is often described as a very experienced farmer. As a group leader, Selina is representing her group of 11 farmers in Webuye District in Kenya. She is excited to be joining One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Selina's desire to have access to the best seed prices. 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

Selina and her group will receive a total of 8 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 5 acres.
