Agneta'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.

Agneta's Group's story

Agneta's Group is formed by 14 farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Agneta, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 41 years old and has 5 children. Agneta has been a farmer for 10 years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Agneta isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2018 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since.

This year, Agneta will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel, and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Agneta's Group will purchase a total of 5 solar lights. They will use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.
