A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.


Dina's Group's story

Dina, pictured above, has eight children and is representing her group, formed by 12 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Dina 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. Dina plans to use the profits she gains this year to buy a cow.

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

In this group: Dina, Festus, Fronicah, Florence, Margaret, Peter, Jane, Abiud, Catherine, Dorcas, Rabeka, Noel


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
