Bridgit'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 to improve harvests of maize.

Bridgit's Group's story

Pictured above is Bridgit, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 30 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of five farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Bridgit is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Bridgit says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2016, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Bridgit will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 1.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
