Solomon's Group's story

Solomon is a 38-year-old proud father of 4 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very resourceful person, and is representing his group of 10 farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Solomon has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family.

Solomon described his harvest as poor 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, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school.

With this loan, Solomon’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.
