Grace 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 had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since. This year, Grace will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase two solar lights.
