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

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

Selina's Group's story

Selina, pictured above, has five children and is representing her group, formed by six farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

With a portion of this loan, Selina will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Selina plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Selina’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant one acre of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights.
