A loan helped to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Alice's Group's story

Alice is 55 years old and has five children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Alice has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. 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 good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Alice also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Alice's Group will be able to receive a total of four solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
