Fauzia'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 fertilizer and hybrid seeds to improve her maize harvest.

Fauzia's Group's story

Pictured above is Fauzia, who is often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 35 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing 6 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Fauzia is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Fauzia says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Fauzia will use the profits from this season to invest in a business.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant 4.75 acres. The group will also be purchasing a solar light.
