Everlyne'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 and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Everlyne's Group's story

Everlyne is a 50-year-old proud mother of six children. She is a group leader, often described as a very trustworthy person, and is representing her group of six farmers in Chwele District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Everlyne has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Everlyne described her harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions last year, but she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited also to be purchasing a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

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