Janefer'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.

Janefer's Group's story

Janefer's Group is formed by six farmers in Matete District and is being represented by Janefer, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 45 years old and has six children. Janefer has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Janefer isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition ever since.

This year, Janefer will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but she 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, Janefer's Group will purchase a total of six solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 1 acre.
