Esther'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 a solar light.

Esther's Group's story

Esther is a 43-year-old proud mother of four children. She is a group leader, often described as a very trustworthy person, and is representing her group of eight farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Esther has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Esther 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 a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Esther’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land and purchase a total of five solar lights.
