Dorine'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 two solar lights.

Dorine's Group's story

Dorine is a 28-year-old proud mother of 3 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 9 farmers in Kimilili District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Dorine has noticed that she has learnt a lot from farming training.

Dorine described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, apart from fertiliser and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Dorine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 2.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 12 solar lights.
