A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.


Lucy's Group's story

Lucy, pictured above, has been a farmer for 15 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 11 farmers in Mumias District. She is 36 years old, married and has 4 children.

Lucy likes to think of herself as a very hard-working individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she was proposed by the team. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Lucy plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Lucy’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 12.5 acres of land.

In this group: Lucy, Alice, Hellen, Grace, Henry, Gladys, Joackim, Benson, David, Joshua, Julius


This loan is special because:
