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

Caren's Group's story

Caren is a proud 40-year-old mother of 4 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hard-working individual, and is representing her group of 11 farmers in Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Caren has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Caren 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 have light during dark hours for her children to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Caren’s Group will be able to plant a total of 5.75 acres of land and purchase a total of 3 solar lights.

In this group: Caren, Joyce, Caroline, Benta, Jenipher, Margaret, Rose, Walter, Mary, Millicent, Florence
