Catherine'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 seed and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Catherine's Group's story

Catherine is working alongside One Acre Fund once again. She has been a member since 2015 and, although she is the only person featured in the picture, she is actually representing her group of 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Catherine is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent her group because she was proposed by team. Like many of her fellow farmers, Catherine decided to join the One Acre Fund community to have access to quality training and to 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 Catherine but the whole group, who will receive maize seed and fertilizer to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land.
