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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, and also helps him purchase a solar light.

Dickson's Group's story

Dickson's Group is formed by nine farmers in the Chwele District. The Group is being represented by Dickson, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 59 years old and has ten children. Dickson has been a farmer for more than twenty years and is often referred to as a very trustworthy person.

Dickson isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed that his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, Dickson will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition, since now he will be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer.

Using this loan, Dickson's Group will purchase a total of three solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 9.25 acres.
