Joyce's Group

Kakamega North, Kakamega County, Kenya / Agriculture

Joyce'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, as well as a solar light.

Joyce's Group's story

Joyce, pictured above, has seven children and is always described as a very trustworthy person, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Joyce is representing her group of 11 farmers in Kakamega North District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. Joyce has been a farmer for 15 years and, in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this coming season, Joyce is planning to invest in a business. A total of six acres will be planted by Joyce's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 8 solar lights.
