Asia's Group's story

Asia, age 50, is the leader of this group of seven farmers in Kilolo North District. Her fellow borrowers describe her as an extremely hard-working individual. She and her husband have five children.

Asia is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again, as this means that she is able to have access to quality training, which allows her to acquire new farming methods. This is the reason she decided to join in the first place. Asia says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly.

Asia will use the profits from this season to repair her home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of six acres.
