Violet's Group's story

Violet is a 35-year-old proud mother of six children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 15 farmers in Sirisia District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Violet has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Violet 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 have light during the night in order to feel safer. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Violet’s Group will be able to plant a total of 10.25 acres of land and purchase a total of seven solar lights.
