Lucy'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.

Lucy's Group's story

Pictured above is Lucy, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by seven farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to eight children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Lucy 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 been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, she plans to send her children to school.

Between the 7 farmers in Lucy's Group, a total of 4.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
