Julia'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 maize seed and fertilizer as well as a solar light.

Julia's Group's story

Pictured above is Julia, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 45 years old and, as a group leader, she is representing her group of 8 farmers in Kakamega North District, Kenya. She is married and has 4 children. Julia is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again. This means that she is able to earn enough to feed her family, which is why she decided to join in the first place. She says that she is happy she made that decision because, since she first joined in 2012, she has been able to consistently feed her family and thus improve her day-to-day life significantly. Julia will be purchasing two solar lights which she is excited about because she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. She will use the profits from this season to rent more land to cultivate. The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 2.75 acres. In addition, the group will also receive a total of 6 solar lights between them.
