Esna'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.

Esna's Group's story

Pictured above is Esna who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 8 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Esna joined One Acre Fund in 2012 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, Esna plans to buy a cow.

Between the 13 farmers in Esna's Group, a total of 11.75 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.
