Eclay'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.

Eclay's Group's story

Eclay is 56 years old and has five children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by six farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Eclay has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family. 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.

Eclay 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 the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

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