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

Elizabeth's Group's story

Elizabeth, pictured above, has six children and is representing her group, formed by 11 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Elizabeth 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 have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. Elizabeth plans to use the profits she gains this year to invest in a business.

In total Elizabeth’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 7.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights.
