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

Gladys' Group's story

Gladys is the forty-six-year-old proud mother of three children. She is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and she is representing her group of fourteen farmers from Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Gladys has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

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

With this loan, Gladys’s Group will be able to plant 8.5 acres of land and purchase two solar lights.
