Susy's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.


Susy's Group's story

Susy, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group of 7 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She is married with 4 children.



With a portion of this loan, Susy will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that she will have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. Susy plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.


Susy’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 4.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
