A loan of $525 helps a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.


Levi's Group's story

Levi, pictured above, has 7 children and is representing his group, formed by 13 farmers in Matete District, Kenya. He joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2014 and decided to represent his group because he wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Levi will purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season and a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of his loan means that now he will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Levi plans to use the profits he gains this year to send his children to school.

In total, Levi’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land. They will also receive 2 solar lights.

In this group: Levi, Phanice, Dimona, Hellen, Hellen, Josephine, Judith, Koka, Scolastica, Mary, Doctor, Ziporah


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
