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 harvesting season.

Lilian's Group's story

Pictured above is Lilian, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Lilian joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to earn enough to send her children to school. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Lilian plans to send her children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Lilian's Group, a total of six acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light with this loan, so the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
