Eunice's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Eunice's Group's story

Pictured above is Eunice, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is a mother to 10 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Eunice joined One Acre Fund in 2010 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Eunice plans to send her children to school.

Between the eight farmers in Eunice's Group, a total of 5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
