Tecla'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.

Tecla's Group's story

Tecla is a 43-year-old, proud mother of eight children. She is a group leader who is often described as a very reliable person. She is representing her group of seven farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Tecla has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Tecla described her harvest as good 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 to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to invest in a business.

With this loan, Tecla's Group will be able to plant a total of 4.5 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
