Alice'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.

Alice's Group's story

Alice is 64 years old and has 9 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya.

Alice has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2012. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family. 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. Alice also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have light in her home later in the day.

Obtaining this loan means that Alice's Group will be able to receive a total of 2 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 2.75 acres.
