William'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, as well as a solar light.

William's Group's story

William's Group is formed by nine farmers in Lugari District and is being represented by William, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 47 years old and has five children. William has been a farmer for 14 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

William isn’t new to One Acre Fund; he actually joined the program in 2017 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year, William will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, William's Group will purchase a total of two solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 11.75 acres.
