Petronila'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 the harvest of maize.

Petronila's Group's story

Petronila, pictured above, has been a farmer for 16 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 16 farmers in Teso District. She is 40 years old, is married and has five children.

Petronila likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 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 had more profits from each harvest. Petronila plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Petronila’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 10 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 10 solar lights.
