Elizerbeth'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 a solar light.

Elizerbeth's Group's story

Elizerbeth, pictured above, has five children and is representing her group, formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2009 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Elizerbeth 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 have an overall improved quality of life. Elizerbeth plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

In total, Elizerbeth’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 7.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of nine solar lights.
