Margaret's Group's story

Margaret is a 44-year-old proud mother of six children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 14 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Margaret has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Margaret described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to invest in a business.

With this loan, Margaret’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 11 solar lights.
