Linet'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.

Linet's Group's story

Pictured above is Linet, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to seven children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Linet joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to make more farmer friends in her community. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has a large farm group support. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Linet plans to send her children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Linet's Group, a total of 4.25 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 four solar lights.
