Peres' 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.

Peres' Group's story

Pictured above is Peres, who, as a group leader, is representing her group of 15 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Peres joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program, her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Peres plans to send her children to school.

Between the 15 farmers in Peres's Group, a total of 9.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive 2 solar lights.
