Beatrice'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 a solar light, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Beatrice's Group's story

Beatrice's Group is formed by 11 farmers in the Teso District and is being represented by Beatrice, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 41 years old, married and has 3 children. Beatrice has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very trustworthy person. Beatrice isn’t new to One Acre Fund. She actually joined the program in 2012 and has since noticed that her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has learnt a lot from farming training over the period. This year, Beatrice 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 their consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Using this loan, Beatrice's Group will purchase a total of 11 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6.5 acres.
