Mariam's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Mariam is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2015 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 15 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Mariam is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent her group because she likes being a leader. Like many of her fellow farmers, Mariam decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods and hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

This loan will not only help Mariam but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 13.5 acres of land. Additionally, one farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
