A loan of $350 helps a member to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.


Lenitus' Group's story

Pictured above is Lenitus who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Lenitus 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, Lenitus plans to send her children to school.

Between the 6 farmers in Lenitus's Group, a total of 5.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan.

In this group: Lenitus, Judith, Fedinand, Ezekiel, Mathews, Mercyline


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
