Everlyn'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 seed and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.


Everlyn's Group's story

Everlyn, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of seven farmers in Alego District. She is 45 years old, married and has three children.

Everlyn likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working with One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she was proposed by them. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Everlyn plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Everlyn’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4 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 two solar lights.
