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

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Christine's Group's story

Christine is a 40-year-old proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing her group of 9 farmers in Chwele District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Christine has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Christine 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 have light in her home during dark hours. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a goat.

With this loan, Christine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5 acres of land and purchase a total of 4 solar lights.
