but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Cleophas' Group's story

Cleophas is 62 years old and is often referred to as a really experienced farmer. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Chwele District, formed by eight farmers, including himself.

Cleophas has been a farmer for more than 30 years and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2011 because he wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Cleophas decided to buy a cow from the profits he has made over the years.

Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also a solar light in order to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. He decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate.

With this loan, Cleophas’ Group will receive a total of five solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 4.25 acres.
