Alice's Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seed and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Alice's Group's story

Alice has ten children and is representing her group of eight farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With her portion of this loan, Alice will purchase maize seed and fertilizer for the coming harvest season and a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that she will now be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Alice plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Alice’s Group will use the inputs received through this loan to plant 5.25 acres of land. They will also receive two solar lights.
