Esther'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 harvesting season.

Esther's Group's story

Pictured above is Esther, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 40 years old and, as a group leader, is representing her group of 16 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Esther is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Esther says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2012, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Esther 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 8.75 acres.
