Mildred's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her harvests of maize.

Mildred's Group's story

Mildred, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years and is now proud to represent her group of 14 farmers in Teso District. She is 54 years old, is married, and has six children.

Mildred likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had more profits from each harvest, part of which she used to purchase cows. Mildred plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Mildred’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.25 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
