but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


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


Lucy's Group's story

Pictured above is Lucy, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 41 years old and has five children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Lucy 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. Lucy says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Lucy will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10.25 acres. Given that one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
