Jane'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 for the cultivation of maize, as well as two solar lights.

Jane's Group's story

Jane, pictured above, has 9 children and is always described as a very reliable person, which is why she was selected to become a group leader. Jane is representing her group of 9 farmers in the Chwele District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year.

Jane has been a farmer for more than 20 years. In order to earn enough to feed her family, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs, but also two solar lights, which she is very happy to be getting. The solar lights will provide light during dark hours so that her children can study. With the profits from this coming season, Jane is planning to send her children to school.

A total of 5 acres will be planted by Jane's Group, and the group members will receive a total of 9 solar lights.
