Rodah'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.

Rodah's Group's story

Rodah, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group, formed by 14 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She is married and has three children.

With a portion of this group loan, Rodah 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 now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. Rodah plans to use the profits she gains this year to save more money for the future.

In total, Rodah ’s Group will use the farming inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 7.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of ten solar lights.
