Scolastica'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 season, as well as a solar light.

Scolastica's Group's story

Scolastica, age 39, is a proud mother of four children. She is often described as a very friendly person. As a group leader, she is representing six farmers from Kakamega B (North) District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Scolastica has noticed that she has gained a lot of respect in her community.

She described her harvest last year as good, but she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. Scolastica is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize seeds, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to save more money for the future.

With this loan, Scolastica’s group will be able to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
