Christine'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 maize cultivation, and a solar light.

Christine's Group's story

Christine, pictured above, has 9 children and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2011 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

With a portion of this loan, Christine 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 the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. Christine plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Christine’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant 7.25 acres of land. They will also receive 11 solar lights.
