Dolorosa'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.

Dolorosa's Group's story

Dolorosa is 65 years old and has nine children. She is a group leader representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Dolorosa has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Dolorosa has also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to study by.

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