Jeridah's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Jeridah's Group's story

Jeridah's Group is formed by seven farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Jeridah, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 57 years old and has 10 children. Jeridah has been a farmer for two years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Jeridah isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2019 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Jeridah will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Jeridah's Group will purchase a total of two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.5 acres.
