Philomena'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 two solar lights.

Philomena's Group's story

Philomena, pictured above, has seven children and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2010 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

With a portion of this loan, Philomena will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also two solar lights.

Receiving two solar lights as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Philomena plans to use the profits she gains this year to save more money for the future.

In total, Philomena’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 11 solar lights.
