Ann'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 harvest season.

Ann's Group's story

Pictured above is Ann, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Ann joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best-quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to save more money. With the profits from the coming harvest season, Ann plans to send her children to school.

Among the 11 farmers in Ann's Group, a total of 12.25 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, so with this loan, the group will also receive a total of five solar lights.
