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

Gladys' Group's story

Gladys, pictured above, has 5 children and is representing her group, formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2010 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Gladys will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting 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 be able to study. Gladys N plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

In total Gladys’ 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 7 solar lights.
