Esther'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.

Esther's Group's story

Pictured above is Esther, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She married and is a mother to 5 children, known by her community as a very hardworking individual. Initially, Esther joined One Acre Fund in 2018 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Esther plans to send her children to school. Between the 14 farmers in Esther's Group, a total of 7.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
