A loan of $700 helps a member to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season, as well as two solar lights.


Leah's Group's story

Leah is a 35-year-old proud mother of three. She's a group leader, often described as very resourceful, representing 13 farmers in Lugari District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, she's noticed she's been able to consistently feed her family.

Her harvest was poor last year due to bad weather conditions, but she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. Leah is very excited to also be purchasing two solar lights, in addition to fertilizer and maize, because she'll 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, Leah’s Group will be able to plant a total of 9½ acres of land and purchase six solar lights.

In this group: Leah, Bernedeta, Emmy, Johnson, Misheni, Mary, Maximilla, Moses, Enika, Rose, Paul, Salina, Sarah


This loan is special because:

It supports smallholder farmers to purchase seeds and solar lanterns.
