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

Ziporah's Group's story

Pictured above is Ziporah, who as a group leader is representing her group formed by 13 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 5 children and is known by her community as a very reliable person.

Initially Ziporah joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. 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, Ziporah plans to send her children to school.

Between the 13 farmers in Ziporah's Group, a total of 10.25 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 6 solar lights.

In this group: Ziporah , Augostine, Rispa, Caroline, Carolyne, Enos, Faith, Josephine, Phanice, Haron, Josphat, Sivenzia, Erustus
