Metrine's Group's story

Metrine's Group is formed by nine farmers in Webuye District and is being represented by Metrine, who is the group leader pictured above. She is 42 years old and has five children. Metrine has been a farmer for seven years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Metrine isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed her life has changed, especially in the sense that she has a large farm support group ever since. This year, Metrine 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 have an overall improved quality of life.

Using this loan, Metrine's Group will purchase a total of four solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.25 acres.

In this group: Metrine, Tobister, Tom, Peter, Jackson, Jane, Job, Maryline, Joy

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
