Susy'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, as well as hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve harvests of maize.

Susy's Group's story

Susy's Group is formed by 14 farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Susy, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 40 years old, is married and has three children. Susy has been a farmer for 20 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Susy isn’t new to One Acre Fund, she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed that her life has changed; especially in the sense that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. This year, Susy will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase a solar light. She is very excited about this addition since now she will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Susy's Group will purchase a total of 13 solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of four acres.
