Valaria'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.

Valaria's Group's story

Valaria, pictured above, has been a farmer for three years, and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Mumias District. She is 28 years old, married and has two children.

Valaria likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she was just proposed by team. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Valaria plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Valaria’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.75 acres of land. 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 two solar lights.
