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


Florence's Group's story

Pictured above is Florence, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. She is a mother to five children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Florence 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Florence plans to repair her home.

Among the 11 farmers in Florence's Group, a total of 6 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: Florence , Samuel, Moses, Winnie, Rachael , Everlyne, Catherine, Dorcas, Peter, Joice, Esther


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
