Ann'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, as well as a solar light.

Ann's Group's story

Ann is 30 years old and is often described as a very friendly person. As a group leader, Ann is representing her group of nine farmers in Kakamega B (North) District in Kenya. She is excited to be joining One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Ann's desire to earn enough to feed her family. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

Ann and her group will receive a total of four solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.75 acres.
