A loan helped a member to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Mazeras' Group's story

Mazeras is the group leader of his group in Lugari District, and he is representing seven farmers, including himself. Mazeras joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but he has been a farmer for one year.

Like many other farmers, Mazeras decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. He hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer he will get with this loan, he can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. He plans to use the profits he earns from this year’s harvest to save more money for the future.

Mazeras's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 2.75 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.

In this group: Mazeras, Joyce, Ritah, Getrude, Norah, Eunice, Peressy

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
