Alice'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.

Alice's Group's story

Alice's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Webuye district and is being represented by Alice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old and has 8 children. Alice has been a farmer for 15 years, and is often referred to as a very trustworthy person.

Alice isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2016 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, Alice 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Alice's Group will purchase a total of 11 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 2.5 acres.
