Grace'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 to improve harvests of maize.

Grace's Group's story

Grace, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Matete District. She is 58 years old, is married and has 7 children.

Grace likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of OAF farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has allowed her to learn a lot from farming trainings.

Grace plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Grace’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
