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


Rhoda's Group's story

Pictured above is Rhoda, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very friendly person.

Initially, Rhoda joined One Acre Fund in 2014 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, Rhoda plans to send her children to school.

Between the 11 farmers in Rhoda's Group, a total of 7 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.

In this group: Rhoda, Beatrice, Dina, Elizabeth, Lucy, Gorety, Joseph , Rosemary, Pascalia, Philip, Maurine


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
