A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as two solar lights.

Syprose's Group's story

Syprose's Group includes twelve farmers from Alego District and is being represented by Syprose, who is the group leader pictured above. She is fifty-six years old and has nine children. Syprose has been a farmer for more than twenty years and is often referred to as a very reliable person.

Syprose isn’t new to One Acre Fund; she actually joined the program in 2018 and has since noticed her life has changed – especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year, Syprose will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of her loan, but will also purchase two solar lights. She is very excited about this addition since she will now be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Syprose's Group will purchase a total of three solar lights and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 4.75 acres.

In this group: Syprose, Christine, Eunice, Jenipher, Nelly, Rose, Seline, Zadock, Collins, Rosemary, Teresia, George

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
