A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Emily's Group's story

Emily's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Lugari District and is being represented by Emily, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 42 years old and has 8 children. Emily has been a farmer for 10 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Emily isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2017 and has noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Emily will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but she will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition, as now she will be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Emily's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
