Efrasia'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 hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Efrasia's Group's story

Efrasia's Group is made up of seven farmers in Kilolo North District and is being represented by Efrasia, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 51 years old and has five children. Efrasia has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Efrasia isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2016, and has noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family. This year, Efrasia 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 dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Efrasia's Group will purchase a total of one solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 15 acres.
