Julia'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 hybrid maize seeds and fertilizer, plus a solar-powered light.

Julia's Group's story

Often described as an extremely hardworking individual, Julia is 52 years old and has five children. She is representing a group of six farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Julia is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, the reason she decided to join in the first place. She says that since she joined OAF in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family and so has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Julia will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

Julia’s group will use this loan to buy maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.75 acres. Two members will also receive a solar light each.
