but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Joyce's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Joyce is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of six farmers in Mumias District, Kenya.

Joyce is often described by her community as a very resourceful person and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Joyce decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

This loan will not only help Joyce but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of three acres of land. In addition, 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 four solar lights.
