Mary'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 to cultivate maize and purchase a solar light.

Mary's Group's story

Mary, pictured above, has 6 children and is representing her group, formed by 5 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2010 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Mary will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, but also 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 study.

Mary plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

In total Mary’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant 2 acres of land. They will also receive 3 solar lights.
