A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.


Christine's Group's story

Christine is a 57-year-old proud mother of 4 children. She is a group leader who is often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 13 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Christine has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest.

Christine described her harvest last year as good, but she believes she can have an even better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to repair her home.

With this loan, Christine’s Group will be able to plant a total of 11.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.
