Beatrice'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.

Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice is a 60-year-old proud mother of five children. She is a group leader, often described as a very trustworthy person, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Beatrice has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Beatrice described her harvest as 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 be purchasing a solar light also, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Beatrice’s Group will be able to plant a total of 2.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 10 solar lights.
