Lazaro's Group's story

Lazaro is an 83-year-old proud father of 2 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing his group of 9 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Lazaro has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Lazaro described his harvest as very good last year, but he 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 two solar lights, 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 repair his home.

With this loan, Lazaro’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6.5 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.
