Stella'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.

Stella's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Stella is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 13 farmers in Teso District, Kenya.

Stella is often described by her community as a very friendly person and decided to be the one to represent her group because she was just proposed by the team. Like many of her fellow farmers, Stella decided that she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

This loan will not only help Stella but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 4 acres of land.
