Nancy's Group's story

Nancy's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Mumias District and is being represented by Nancy, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old and has 5 children. Nancy has been a farmer for 3 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Nancy isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Nancy will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Nancy's Group will purchase a total of 9 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 8 acres.

In this group: Nancy, Rebeccah, Recho, Zaituna, Lucy, Elizabeth, Metrin, Susan, Rosemary, Diana, Ruth, Brigid


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
