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


Everlyne's Group's story

Pictured above is Everlyne, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 6 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Everlyne joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. 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 harvest season, Everlyne plans to send her children to school.

Between the 6 farmers in Everlyne's Group, a total of 3 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 2 solar lights.

In this group: Everlyne, Philomena, Mary, Felistus, Christine, Mary


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
