Christine's Group's story

Christine, pictured above, has been a farmer for 18 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 16 farmers in the Matete District. She is 40 years old, unmarried and has 4 children.

Christine likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

Christine says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Christine plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

In total, Christine’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.75 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
