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

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Steda's Group's story

Steda, pictured above, has been a farmer for 13 years, and is now proud to represent her group of six farmers in Kilolo North District. She is 36 years old, married and has three children.

Steda likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Steda plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Steda’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 7 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
