Charles' Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Charles' Group's story

Charles is 25 years old and is often referred to as a really resourceful person. As a group leader, he is representing his group in Teso District, formed by 10 farmers, including himself.

Charles has been a farmer for 6 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2019 because he wanted to earn enough to feed his family. Not only will he get maize seeds and fertilizer with his loan, but also a solar light in order to have an overall improved quality of life. He has decided that he will use the profits he gains from this year’s harvest to rent more land to cultivate.

With this loan, Charles’s Group will receive 1 solar light as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 7 acres.
