Asha's Group's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.
Asha's Group's story
Asha, pictured above, has 6 children and is always described as a very friendly person, which is why she was selected to become the group leader of her group. Asha is representing her group of 13 farmers in Butere District and is happy to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year. Asha has been a farmer for 20 years and in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, 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, Asha is planning to send her children to school. A total of 5 acres will be planted by Asha's Group, and between them they will receive a total of 13 solar lights."
