Alfred'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.

Alfred's Group's story

Alfred is a 26-year-old proud mother of 2 children. She is a group leader, and often described as a very trustworthy person. She is representing her group of 9 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Alfred has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Alfred described her harvest as poor 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 fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during the night in order to feel safer. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to invest in a business.

With this loan, Alfred’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6 acres of land and purchase 1 solar light.
