A loan helped a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.


Jackyline's Group's story

Pictured above is Jackyline, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She is the mother of 5 children and is known by her community as a very hard-working individual.

Initially, Jackyline joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family.

With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Jackyline plans to send her children to school.

Between the 6 farmers in Jackyline's Group, a total of 3.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

In this group: Jackyline, Simon, Henry, Beatrice, Rose , Andrew
