Maureen's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as two solar lights.

Maureen's Group's story

Maureen is a 30-year-old proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 16 farmers in Chwele District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Maureen has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest.

Maureen described her harvest as very 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 two solar lights, 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 buy a goat.

With this loan, Maureen’s Group will be able to plant a total of 13.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 13 solar lights.
