Naomi'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 to improve her harvests of maize.

Naomi's Group's story

Pictured above is Naomi, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 52 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 18 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Naomi is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Naomi says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2017, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Naomi will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 33 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
