Alice'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.

Alice's Group's story

Alice's Group is formed by 9 farmers in Alego District and is represented by Alice, who is the group leader. Alice is pictured above. She is 45 years old and has 7 children. Alice has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very resourceful person.

Alice isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2016 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially as she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Alice will not only be able to get fertilizer and maize seeds with her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone.

Using this loan, Alice's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs purchased to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
