Miriam's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Miriam's Group's story

Miriam, pictured above, has six children and is representing her group of nine farmers from Mumias District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Miriam will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now Miriam will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study. Miriam plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Miriam’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 3.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights.
