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.


Mary's Group's story

Pictured above is Mary, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Mary joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Mary plans to invest in a business.

Between the eight farmers in Mary's Group, a total of 10.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, a farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
