Lucy'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.

Lucy's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Lucy is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 14 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya.

Lucy is often described by her community as a very hardworking individual and decided to be the one to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Like many of her fellow farmers, Lucy decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

This loan will not only help Lucy, but also the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of nine acres of land.
