Eglay's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Eglay's Group's story

Eglay, pictured above, has nine children and is representing her group, formed by seven farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Eglay will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. Eglay plans to use the profits she gains this year to save more money for the future.

In total Eglay’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of four solar lights.
