Zacharia's Group's story

Zacharia is a 40-year-old, proud father of five children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hard-working individual and he is representing his group of 15 farmers in Butere District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Zacharia has noticed that he has had more profits from each harvest. Zacharia described his harvest as good last year, but believes he can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. He is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because he will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and, therefore, save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, he plans to send his children to school. With this loan, Zacharia’s Group will be able to plant a total of seven acres of land and purchase a total of 13 solar lights.
