A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice, pictured above, has 7 children and is representing her group, formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With this loan, Beatrice will purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light. Receiving a solar light 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. Beatrice plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Beatrice’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 5.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 10 solar lights.
