Florida's Group's story

Florida 's Group is formed by 15 farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Florida , who is the group leader pictured above. She is 30 years old, is married and has 4 children. Florida has been a farmer for 11 years and is often referred to as a very trustworthy person.

Florida isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Florida 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 have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Florida 's Group will purchase a total of 15 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
