Belinda'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.

Belinda's Group's story

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

Initially, Belinda joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had more profits from each harvest. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Belinda plans to send her children to school.

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