Carolyne'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 maize cultivation.

Carolyne's Group's story

Carolyne, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 6 farmers in Teso District. She is 32 years old and married with 3 children.

Carolyne likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working with One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Carolyne plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Carolyne’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.5 acres of land. Since some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive 1 solar light.
