Bridgid'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.

Bridgid's Group's story

Bridgid is 41 years old and has 6 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. Bridgid 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 have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and, although she described her last harvest as poor, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Bridgid 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 be able to study. Obtaining this loan means that Bridgid's Group will be able to receive a total of 7 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.5 acres.
