Florence'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.

Florence's Group's story

Florence is 50 years old and has four children. She is a group leader and is representing eight farmers in the Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Florence has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program in 2014. Her decision to join was largely a result of her desire to have access to the best seed prices. Although she describes her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund.

Florence has also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about. The solar light will enable her to have light during dark hours for her children to study.

Obtaining this loan means that Florence's group will be able to receive four solar lights and farming inputs to plant a total of 3.5 acres.
