Rabecah's Group's story

Rabecah's Group is formed by eight farmers in Chwele District and is being represented by Rabecah, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 30 years old, married and has two children. Rabecah has been a farmer for nine years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Rabecah isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to save more money. This year, Rabecah will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar lamp. She is very excited about this addition since she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Rabecah's Group will purchase a total of four solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.75 acres.
