Hudson _Matete Group's story

Hudson is a 27-year-old proud father of 2 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very reliable person, and is representing his group of 8 farmers in the Matete District.

Since joining One Acre Fund in 2019, Hudson has noticed that he has been able to save more money.

Hudson described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Hudson’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4 acres of land and purchase a total of 5 solar lights.
