Patricia'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 to improve harvests of maize.

Patricia's Group's story

Patricia, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent her group of 11 farmers in the Alego District. She is 58 years old, married, and has 7 children.

Patricia likes to think of herself as a very hard-working individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Patricia plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Patricia’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 3 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
