Lilian'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 harvest season, as well as a solar light.

Lilian's Group's story

Lilian is 31 years old and has four children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Lilian has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2015. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, and although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Lilian also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Lilian's Group will be able to receive a total of two solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 14.25 acres.
