Gentrix's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Gentrix's Group's story

Gentrix, pictured above, has been a farmer for three years, and is now proud to represent her group of eleven farmers in Chwele District. She is 39 years old, married, and has seven children.

Gentrix likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Gentrix plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Gentrix’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate six acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of three solar lights.
