A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.


Dainess' Group's story

Dainess, pictured above, has been a farmer for ten years, and is now proud to represent her group of 14 farmers in Kilolo North District. She is 48 years old, married, and has four children.

Dainess likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Dainess plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Dainess’ Group will receive inputs to cultivate 14 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of four solar lights.

In this group: Dainess, Agness, Aida, Jeni, Spelanzia, Lucy, Tulia, Metsela, Felis, Melali, Joyce, Evalisto, Aneti, Blandina


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
