Diana'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, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her harvest of maize.

Diana's Group's story

Diana's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Diana, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old, is married, and has 4 children. Diana has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Diana isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2014. She notes that her life has changed, especially in that she has learnt a lot from the farming training ever since.

This year, Diana will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but she will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Diana's Group will purchase a total of 7 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2 acres.
