Philippine'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.

Philippine's Group's story

Philippine, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years. She is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Lugari District. She is 30 years old, married and has 4 children.

Philippine likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she was just nominated by the team. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Philippine plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

In total, Philippine’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.25 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 2 solar lights.
