Agneta's Group

Kakamega North, Kakamega County, Kenya / Agriculture

Agneta'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 harvest season, as well as two solar lights.

Agneta's Group's story

Agneta is 51 years old and has 4 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Agneta 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 have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and, although she described her last harvest as poor, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Agneta also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Agneta's Group will be able to receive a total of 3 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to cultivate a total of 4.75 acres.
