Lear'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.

Lear's Group's story

Lear is 65 years old and the proud mother of 6 children. She is a group leader representing her group of 10 farmers in the Matete District, and she is often described as a very hardworking individual. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2013, Lear has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family. She described her harvest last year as excellent, but believes she can have an even better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to invest in a business. She is very excited also to be purchasing a solar light aswell as the fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce her consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With this loan, Lear’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 9 solar lights.
