Salima's Group's story

Salima's Group is formed by 13 farmers in Kilolo North District and is being represented by Salima, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 42 years old and has five children. Salima has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Salima isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2017 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, Salima 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 the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

Using this loan, Salima's Group will purchase a total of 9 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 18.5 acres.
