Everlyne's Group's story

Everlyne is a 54-year-old proud mother of 11 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 8 farmers in Webuye District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2015, Everlyne has noticed that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition.

Everlyne 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 reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to buy a cow.

With this loan, Everlyne’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4 acres of land and purchase a total of 6 solar lights."
