Elizabeth'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 a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Elizabeth's Group's story

"Elizabeth is 53 years old and has 7 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Butere District, Kenya. Elizabeth has been farming with One Acre Fund for several years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, and, although she described her last harvest as good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Elizabeth also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Obtaining this loan means that Elizabeth's Group will be able to receive a total of 8 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7 acres."
