Judith'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 cultivating maize, as well as a solar light.

Judith's Group's story

Judith's Group is formed by 12 farmers in Chwele District and is being represented by Judith, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 38 years old and has five children. Judith has been a farmer for 16 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Judith isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2014 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, Judith 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 in order to feel safer.

Using this loan, Judith's Group will purchase a total of nine solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
