Violet'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.

Violet's Group's story

Violet is 44 years old and has four children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 15 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya.

Violet has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, and although she described her last harvest as excellent, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Violet also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about because it will allow her to have light during the night in order to feel safer.

Obtaining this loan means that Violet's Group will be able to receive a total of 6 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 9.75 acres.
