Leah's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

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

Leah's Group's story

Pictured above is Leah, who, as a group leader, is representing her group of 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 8 children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Leah joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Leah plans to buy more land to cultivate.

The 11 farmers in Leah's Group will plant a total of 8.5 acres of land 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 3 solar lights.
