Zainabu'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 harvests of maize.

Zainabu's Group's story

Zainabu, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 30 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Chwele District. She is 56 years old, is married, and has eight children.

Zainabu likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working with One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to spread the story of One Acre Fund farmers.

She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has learnt a lot from farming trainings. Zainabu plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Zainabu’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 4.75 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 2 solar lights.
