Caroline'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, as well as a solar light.

Caroline's Group's story

Caroline is 51 years old and has three children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by five farmers in the Lugari District, Kenya.

Caroline has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and to acquire new farming methods.

Although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Caroline 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 Caroline's Group will be able to receive one solar light, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.5 acres.
