A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.
Felistus's Group's story
Felistus, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group, formed by 15 farmers in Kakamega North District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She is married and has two children. With a portion of this loan, Felistus will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have an overall improved quality of life. Felistus plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school. In total Felistus’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 8.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of five solar lights.
