Hellen'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, as well as a solar light.

Hellen's Group's story

Hellen is 35 years old and has three children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by five farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Hellen has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2014. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods.

Although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Hellen also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life.

Obtaining this loan means that Hellen's Group will be able to receive a total of two solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 3.5 acres.
