A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Teresa's Group's story

Pictured above is Teresa, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 16 farmers in Alego District, Kenya. She is a mother to eight children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Teresa joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Teresa plans to send her children to school.

Between the 17 farmers in Teresa's Group, a total of 6.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
