Damary'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.

Damary's Group's story

Pictured above is Damary, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother of 7 children, and she is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Damary joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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 had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Damary plans to send her children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Damary's Group, a total of 11 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 1 solar light.
