Emily'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, as well as a solar light.


Emily's Group's story

Emily is 48 years old and has 3 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 8 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Emily has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Emily also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life.

Obtaining this loan means that Emily's Group will be able to receive a total of 3 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4 acres.
