A loan of $575 helped a member to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Everlyne's Group's story

Everlyne, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group of 10 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2011 and decided to represent her group because she wants to help more farmers. She is married and has 3 children.

With a portion of this loan, Everlyne 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 the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. Everlyne plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a goat.

In total Everlyne’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 6 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.

In this group: Everlyne, Basilisa, Erick, Fanice, Gabriel, Janet, Joffrey, Joyce, Leonida, Getrude

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
