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

Clementita's Group's story

Clementita, pictured above, has 6 children and is representing her group, formed by 11 farmers in Mumias District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she her team proposed it.

With a portion of this loan, Clementita will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life. Clementita plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

In total, Clementita’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
