Selina'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.

Selina's Group's story

Selina is a 26-year-old proud mother of two children. She is a group leader, often described as a very trustworthy person, and is representing her group of 16 farmers in Kilolo South District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Selina has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest.

Selina described her harvest as 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 repair her home.

With this loan, Selina’s Group will be able to plant a total of 11 acres of land and purchase a total of 6 solar lights.
