Willimina'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.

Willimina's Group's story

Pictured above is Willimina, who as a group leader is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 7 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Willimina joined One Acre Fund in 2012 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 learnt a lot from farming trainings. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Willimina plans to invest in a business.

Between the 11 farmers in Willimina's Group, a total of 10.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
