Christine'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 a solar light and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Christine's Group's story

Christine is a 45-year-old, proud mother of seven children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of 10 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Christine has noticed that she has learned a lot from farming training.

Christine described her harvest as very good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to rent more land to cultivate.

With this loan, Christine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.5 acres of land and purchase a total of nine solar lights.
