A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Violet's Group's story

Violet's Group is formed by seven farmers in Kimilili District and is being represented by Violet, their leader, pictured above. She is 42 years old and has seven children. Violet has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Violet joined One Acre Fund in 2014 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has had more profits from each harvest ever since.

This year, Violet will buy fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, and also will purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Violet's Group will purchase a total of four solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
