Elizabeth'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.

Elizabeth's Group's story

Pictured above is Elizabeth, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 15 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Elizabeth 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, Elizabeth plans to save more money for the future.

Among the 15 farmers in Elizabeth's Group, a total of 8 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
