Ruth'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 two solar lights and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Ruth's Group's story

Ruth is 50 years old and has six children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District, Kenya.

Ruth has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2011. This decision was largely a result of her desire to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Although she described her last harvest as very good, she believes she could have a better one this year by continuing to work alongside One Acre Fund. Ruth also decided to purchase two solar lights as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Obtaining this loan means that Ruth's Group will be able to receive a total of 13 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 5.75 acres.
