Jane's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Jane's Group's story

Pictured above is Jane, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 49 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 18 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Jane is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Jane says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2013, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Jane will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 16.25 acres.
