Conselata's Group's story

Conselata's Group is formed by six farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Conselata, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 38 years old and has five children. Conselata has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Conselata isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Conselata will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Conselata's Group will purchase a total of two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.75 acres.
