Wilfrida's Group's story

Wilfrida is a 54-year-old proud mother of seven children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of eight farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Wilfrida has noticed that she has been able to feed her family consistently.

Wilfrida described her harvest as poor 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 be purchasing a solar light also, 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 buy a cow.

With this loan, Wilfrida ’s Group will be able to plant a total of 2.5 acres of land and purchase a total of eight solar lights.
