Celestine'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.

Celestine's Group's story

Celestine, pictured above, has seven children and is always described as a very hardworking individual, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Celestine is representing her group of 14 farmers in Webuye District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. Celestine has been a farmer for more than 20 years and, in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods, she decided to join the One Acre Fund program this season. Her loan will not only include farming inputs but also a solar light, which she is very happy to be getting as that means she will now have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this coming season, Celestine is planning to buy a cow. A total of 6.25 acres will be planted by Celestine's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 10 solar lights.
