Jentrix'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 increase maize cultivation.

Jentrix's Group's story

Jentrix is 50 years old and has six children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Jentrix 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 send her children to school, 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. Jentrix 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 light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Jentrix's Group will be able to receive a total of six solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
