Priscillah'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.

Priscillah's Group's story

Priscillah, pictured above, has six children and is representing her group, formed by nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader.

With a portion of this loan, Priscillah 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 dark hours for her children to be able to study. Priscillah plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total Priscillah’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 10.5 acres of land. They will also receive a total of two solar lights.
