Violet'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 harvest season, as well as a solar light.

Violet's Group's story

Violet is a 38-year-old proud mother of four children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of nine farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Violet has noticed that she has gained a lot of respect in her community.

Violet described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to repair her home.

With this loan, Violet’s Group will be able to plant a total of 1.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 10 solar lights.
