Nelima'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.

Nelima's Group's story

Pictured above is Nelima, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Nelima joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. 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, Nelima plans to save more money for the future.

Between the 13 farmers in Nelima's Group, a total of 6.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light with this loan, so the group will also receive one solar light.
