A loan helped a member to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, as well as a solar light.

Glennis' Group's story

Glennis is a 29-year-old proud mother of 3 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 12 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Glennis has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Glennis 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 a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Glennis’s Group will be able to plant a total of 6.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 11 solar lights.

In this group: Glennis, Edward, Elizabeth, Emily, Eunice, Harrison, Jacklyne, Jane, Lilian, Peter, Rebah, Janet
