Priscilla'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.

Priscilla's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Priscilla is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2012 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 13 farmers in the Lugari District of Kenya.

Priscilla is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Like many of her fellow farmers, Priscilla decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to the best seed prices and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to invest in a business.

This loan will not only help Priscilla but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 12.5 acres of land. 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 2 solar lights.
