Helida'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, as well as a solar light.

Helida's Group's story

Helida's Group is formed by four farmers from the Alego District and is represented by Helida, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old and has six children. Helida has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Helida isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She first joined the program in 2018 and has noticed that her life has changed since; especially in that she has been able to feed her family consistently ever since.

This year, Helida will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and thereby save more money.

Using this loan, Helida's Group will purchase a total of 2 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 1 acres.
