Esther'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,des for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Esther's Group's story

Esther is 52 years old and has 4 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 19 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Esther has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2013. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to send her children to school and, although she described her last harvest as excellent, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Esther 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 the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

Obtaining this loan means that Esther 's Group will be able to receive a total of 2 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 18.75 acres. Thank you.
