Everlyne'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.
Everlyne's Group's story
Everlyne is 30 years old and is often described as a very hardworking individual. She has two children and is married. As a group leader, Everlyne is representing her group of 11 farmers in Matete District in Kenya, and she is very excited to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. The decision to join One Acre Fund was largely a result of Everlyne's desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Apart from receiving farming inputs, she is also purchasing a solar light as part of her loan, which is very exciting to her as she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. With the profits that she gains from this year’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school. Everlyne and her group will receive a total of 11 solar lights as well as input loans of maize and fertilizer to plant a total of seven acres.
