Gladys' 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.

Gladys' Group's story

Gladys, pictured above, has eight children and is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Gladys 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 have an overall improved quality of life. Gladys plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a goat.

Gladys’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 12.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of seven solar lights.
