Lusy's Group's story

Lusy is 60 years old and is often referred to as a really experienced farmer. As a group leader, she is representing her group in Kilolo North District, formed by 12 farmers, including herself.

Lusy has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2014 because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices.

Not only will she get maize seeds and fertilizer with her loan, but also a solar light in order to have a light in the night.

She decided that she will use the profits she gains from this year’s harvest to repair her home.

With this loan, Lusy’s Group will receive a total of three solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
