Rabecca'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.

Rabecca's Group's story

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

Initially, Rabecca joined One Acre Fund in 2013 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, Rabecca plans to send her children to school.

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