Consolata'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.

Consolata's Group's story

Consolata's Group is formed by eight farmers in the Lugari District and is being represented by Consolata, who is the group leader pictured above.

She is 52 years old and has six children. Consolata has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Consolata 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 been able to consistently feed her family.

This year, Consolata 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 have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Consolata's Group will purchase a total of three solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 3.25 acres.
