Redemptah'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 fertiliser for the cultivation of maize, as well as three solar lights.

Redemptah's Group's story

Redemptah's Group is formed by 7 farmers from Kimilili District and is being represented by Redemptah, who is the group leader pictured above. Redemptah is 56 years old and has 6 children. She has been a farmer for 19 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Redemptah 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 had more profits from each harvest ever since.

This year, Redemptah will not only get fertiliser and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase three solar lights. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Redemptah's Group will purchase a total of 9 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.25 acres.
