Valentine'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.

Valentine's Group's story

Valentine is a 49-year-old proud mother of three children. She is the group leader, is often described as a very hard-working individual, and is representing her group of nine farmers from Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Valentine has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Valentine 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, in addition to the fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to invest in a business.

With this loan, Valentine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 8.5 acres of land and purchase a total of two solar lights.
