A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer as well as a solar light.

Kilea's Group's story

Kilea, pictured above, has 6 children and is representing her group, formed by 16 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

With a portion of this loan, Kilea will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Kilea plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

In total Kilea’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 11 acres of land. They will also receive 1 solar light.
