Hellen's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Hellen's Group's story

Hellen, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group, formed by 12 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2009 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She is married and has three children.

With a portion of this loan, Hellen 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 light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. Hellen plans to use the profits she earns this year to send her children to school.

In total Hellen’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 2.75 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 12 solar lights.
