Margaret'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 a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Margaret's Group's story

Margaret is 60 years old and is often referred to as a really friendly person. As a group leader, she is representing her group in Alego District, formed by 5 farmers, including herself.

Margaret has been a farmer for 19 years, and has worked with One Acre Fund for a while now, having joined for the first time in 2016 because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Not only will she get maize seeds and fertilizer with her loan, but also a solar light in order to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

She decided that she will use the profits she gains from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

With this loan, Margaret’s Group will receive a total of 2 solar lights as well as farming inputs to plant a total of 9.25 acres.
