Noah'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 and gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.
Noah's Group's story
Noah is a 62-year-old proud father of 10 children. He is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing his group of 13 farmers in Matete District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2014, Noah has noticed that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Noah described his harvest as poor due to bad weather conditions 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, in addition to 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, Noah’s Group will be able to plant a total of eight acres of land and purchase a total of nine solar lights.
