Charles' 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.

Charles' Group's story

Charles is a 57-year-old proud father of four children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing his group of eight farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2017, Charles has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Charles described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to have light during dark hours for his children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Charles’s Group will be able to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land and purchase a total of two solar lights.
