Judith'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.

Judith's Group's story

Judith is a proud 40-year-old mother of seven children. She is a group leader, often described as a very friendly person, and is representing her group of 10 farmers in Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Judith has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Judith 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Judith’s Group will be able to plant a total of 3.5 acres of land and purchase a total of six solar lights.
