Hellen's Group's story

Hellen is 28 years old and is often referred to as a really hardworking individual. As a group leader, she is representing her group in Webuye District, formed by 14 farmers, including herself.

Hellen has been a farmer for 10 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2015, because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Not only will she get maize seeds and fertilizer with her loan, but also two solar lights in order to have light during the dark hours for her children to be able to study. She decided that she will use the profits she gains from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

With this loan, Hellen’s Group will receive a total of 12 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 8.25 acres.
