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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent her group of eight farmers in Matete District. She is 38 years old, married, and has three children.

Beatrice likes to think of herself as a very resourceful person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. Beatrice plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a goat.

In total, Beatrice ’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate four 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 one solar light.
