Agnes' 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 the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Agnes' Group's story

Agnes, pictured above, has nine children and is representing her group, formed by five farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

With a portion of this loan, Agnes will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life. Agnes plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total Agnes’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of five acres of land. They will also receive a total of one solar light.
