Jane'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-effective maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, as well as a solar light.

Jane's Group's story

Jane is 50 years old and has 4 children. As group leader, she is representing her group of 18 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Jane has been farming with One Acre Fund for many years now, having first joined the program in 2014. This decision was largely a result of her desire to access the highest-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Jane also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Jane's Group will be able to receive a total of 5 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 12.25 acres.
