Emily'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 two solar lights and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Emily's Group's story

Emily is 55 years old and has 5 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Emily has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. 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. Emily also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life.

Obtaining this loan means that Emily's group will be able to receive a total of 8 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 11 acres.
