Grace'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.

Grace's Group's story

Grace, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Lugari District. She is 45 years old, married and has four children.

Grace likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2016 and decided to represent her group because she was just proposed by the team. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Grace plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Grace’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 12.5 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 five solar lights.
