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.

Lydia's Group's story

Lydia is 54 years old and has four children. She is a experienced farmer and as the group leader of Lydia's Group, she is representing her group of eight farmers in Teso District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2018, Lydia has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Lydia 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, as well as fertilizer and maize. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Lydia’s Group will be able to plant a total of 3.5 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
