Fridah'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.

Fridah's Group's story

Fridah is 48 years old and has 5 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Fridah 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 have access to the best seed prices.

Although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Fridah 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 so that her children can study.

Obtaining this loan means that Fridah's Group will be able to receive a total of 9 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 6.75 acres.
