Timna'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 a solar light and increase maize cultivation.

Timna's Group's story

Timna, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 30 years and is now proud to represent her group of nine farmers in the Sirisia district. She is 59 years old, is married, and has eight children.

Timna likes to think of herself as a very resourceful person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 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 had more profits from each harvest. Timna plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Timna’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing solar lights, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
