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.

Damaries' Group's story

Pictured above is Damaries, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children, and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially, Damaries joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. 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, Damaries plans to send her children to school.

Between the 14 farmers in Damaries's Group, a total of 10.75 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, so with this loan the group will also receive a total of 4 solar lights.
