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


Maureen's Group's story

Pictured above is Maureen, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by seven farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Maureen joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to feed her family consistently. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Maureen plans to send her children to school.

Between the seven farmers in Maureen's Group, a total of 5.25 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 three solar lights.
