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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Emily's Group's story

Pictured above is Emily, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 40 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 10 farmers in Kakamega South District, Kenya. She is married and has 2 children. Emily 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. Emily says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Emily will use the profits from this season to send her children to school. The group will use this loan to purchase a total of 3 solar lights as well as seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 5.75 acres. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
