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-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Jane's Group's story

Pictured above is Jane, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by eight farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Jane joined One Acre Fund in 2012 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 been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Jane plans to repair her home.

Between the eight farmers in Jane's Group, a total of four acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light with this loan, so the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
