Pamella'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Pamella's Group's story

Pamella 's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Kimilili District and is being represented by Pamella , who is the group leader pictured above. She is 41 years old and has 9 children. Pamella has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Pamella isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2014 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has learnt a lot from farming training ever since.

This year, Pamella will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

Using this loan, Pamella 's Group will purchase a total of 7 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
