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

Loice's Group's story

Loice, pictured above, has five children and is representing her group, formed by nine farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Loice 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 in order to feel safer. Loice plans to use the profits she gains this year to send her children to school.

In total, Loice’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land. They will also receive one solar light.

In this group: Loice, Celestine, Everline, William, Margaret, Naomi, Gladys, Selina, Jacklyne

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
