Were'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 a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Were's Group's story

Were is 30 years old and has five children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by five farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Were has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2014. This decision was largely a result of her desire to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. As part of her loan, Were also decided to purchase a solar light, which she is very excited about,

Obtaining this loan means that Were's Group will be able to receive a total of two solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 2.5 acres.
