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


Concepter's Group's story

Pictured above is Concepter, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Kimilili District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Concepter joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. 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, Concepter plans to buy more land to cultivate.

Between the 14 farmers in Concepter's Group, a total of 7.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, so the group will also receive a total of 12 solar lights with this loan.

In this group: Concepter , Catherine, Roselyne, Sellah, Edith, Mary, Lilian, Clare, Judith, Titus, Raema, Florence, Gladys, Josephine


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
