A loan helped a member to purchase a solar light and increase cultivation of maize.

Annah's Group's story

Annah, pictured above, is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 9 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2006 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She is married and has 4 children.

With a portion of this loan, Annah 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, so her children will be able to study. Annah plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Annah’s group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant 6.25 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 6 solar lights.

In this group: Annah, Alex, Devid, Edwin, Kevin, Lydia, Jane, Thaddeus, Lona

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
