Magdalene's Group's story

Magdalene's Group is formed by 10 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Magdalene, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 25 years old, is married and has 3 children. Magdalene has been a farmer for 15 years and is often referred to as a very hardworking individual.

Magdalene isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2013 and has since noticed her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Magdalene 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 the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Magdalene's Group will purchase a total of 10 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.25 acres.
