A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as two solar lights.

Violet's Group's story

Violet is a 38-year-old proud mother of 4 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 6 farmers in Mumias District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Violet has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Violet described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and, therefore, save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Violet’s Group will be able to plant a total of 2.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 5 solar lights.
