Margret's Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

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

Margret's Group's story

Margret, pictured above, has 8 children and is representing her group, formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2006 and decided to represent her group, because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Margret 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Margret plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total Margret’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 9.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.
