Salome'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.

Salome's Group's story

Salome is the group leader of her group in Lugari District, representing nine farmers including herself. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 10 years.

Like many other farmers, Salome decided to work with One Acre Fund to have access to the best seed prices. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

Salome's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate 5.75 acres of land. They will also receive two solar lights as, even though Salome decided not to, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light as part of their loan package.
