Mary'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 for the cultivation of maize.

Mary's Group's story

Mary, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent her group of nine farmers in Kimilili District. She is 44 years old, married, and has two children.

Mary likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside 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 been able to consistently feed her family. Mary plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Mary’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate five 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 four solar lights.
