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 more than 20 years, and she is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Lugari District. She is 48 years old, is married, and has 4 children.

Beatrice likes to think of herself as a very hard-working individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Beatrice plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Beatrice’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.75 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.
