Loyce'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 for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Loyce's Group's story

Loyce, pictured above, has nine children and is representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2009 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Loyce 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Loyce plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a goat.

In total, Loyce’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 11 solar lights.
