Petro'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.

Petro's Group's story

Petro is a 27 year old proud father of 3 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very reliable person, and is representing his group of 27 farmers in Kilolo South District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Petro has noticed that he has had more profits from each harvest. Petro described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have an overall improved quality of life. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to repair his home. With this loan, Petro’s Group will be able to plant a total of 24 acres of land and purchase a total of 18 solar lights.
