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


Brigid's Group's story

Pictured above is Brigid, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 14 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very trustworthy person.

Initially, Brigid joined One Acre Fund in 2012 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, Brigid plans to send her children to school.

Among the 14 farmers in Brigid's Group, a total of 11.25 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 with this loan, the group will also receive a total of seven solar lights.

In this group: Brigid, Damaris, Anjeline, Doreen, Feda, Philis, Julieta, Edith, Franciscah, Mary, Magaret, Marceline, Mary, Elima


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
