Irine'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.

Irine's Group's story

Irine is 46 years old and has five children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Irine has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely as a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family, 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.

Irine 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 Irine's group will be able to receive a total of 14 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 2.5 acres.
