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

Agnes' Group's story

Agnes is 45 years old and has 3 children. She is a group leader and is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Matete District, Kenya.

Agnes has been farming with One Acre Fund for years now, having joined the program for the first time in 2010. This decision was largely a result of her desire to earn enough to feed her family and, 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. Agnes also decided to purchase a solar light as part of her loan, which she is very excited about, as it will allow her to have an overall improved quality of life.

Obtaining this loan means that Agnes's Group will be able to receive a total of 9 solar lights, as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7.75 acres.

In this group: Agnes, Alfred, Josephine, Lishindu, Joseph, Beatrice, Khasoa, Everlyne, Isaac, Rose, Thomas, Gladys, Jack

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
