A loan helped a member to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Juliena's Group's story

Juliena is the group leader of her group in Alego District, and she is representing nine farmers, including herself. Juliena joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 15 years.

Like many other farmers, Juliena decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to earn enough to feed her family. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program.

She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to buy more land to cultivate. Juliena's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 4.25 acres of land.

In this group: Juliena, Pheobe, Damaris, Anjelina, Jenipher, Vitalice, Elvis, Jane, Maurine

This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
