A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Eddah's Group's story

Pictured above is Eddah, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 61 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 14 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Eddah is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Eddah says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2018, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Eddah will use the profits from this season to buy a cow.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 9.25 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
