Nancy'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.

Nancy's Group's story

Nancy, pictured above, has 6 children and is representing her group, formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Nancy 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 an overall improved quality of life. Nancy plans to use the profits she gains this year to save more money for the future.

In total Nancy’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 11.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
