Femina'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.

Femina's Group's story

Femina is 52 years old and has 5 children. She is often described as a very reliable person and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 5 farmers in Lugari District in Kenya. She is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Femina's desire to earn enough to feed her family. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

Femina and her group will receive a total of 2 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
