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 a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her harvest of maize.

Jane's Group's story

Jane's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Teso District and is being represented by Jane, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 43 years old, is married, and has four children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Jane isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2014 and has since noticed her life has changed; most notably, she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Jane will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Jane's Group will purchase a total of six solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6 acres.
