Dinah's Group's story

Dinah, pictured above, has 11 children and is representing her group, formed by 10 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. With a portion of this loan, Dinah will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Dinah plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school. In total Dinah’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 8 solar lights.
