A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.
Esther's Group's story
Esther's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Alego District and is being represented by Esther, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 53 years old and has 6 children. Esther has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person. Esther isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2017 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, Esther 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 the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Esther's Group will purchase a total of 3 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 10.5 acres.
