A loan helped to purchase a solar light and gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Janet's Group's story

Janet is a 39-year-old proud mother of 7 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very experienced farmer, and is representing her group of 15 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Janet has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Janet described her harvest as "good" 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 also be purchasing a solar light, 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 send her children to school.

With this loan, Janet’s group will be able to plant a total of 8 acres of land and purchase a total of 13 solar lights.
