Gladyce's Group

Sirisia, Bungoma County, Kenya / Agriculture

Gladyce'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.

Gladyce's Group's story

Gladyce's group is formed by 14 farmers in Sirisia District and is represented by Gladyce, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old and has 7 children. Gladyce has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Gladyce isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Gladyce will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase two 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, Gladyce's Group will purchase a total of 4 solar lights and use the farming input received to plant a total of 8.5 acres.
