Lucia'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.

Lucia's Group's story

Lucia, pictured above, has been a farmer for 8 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 6 farmers in Alego District. She is 39 years old, married and has 4 children.

Lucia likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Lucia plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Lucia’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
