Irine'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.

Irine's Group's story

Irine, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Chwele District. She is 30 years old, married and has 4 children.

Irine likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2013 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Irine plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Irine’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 6.75 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 6 solar lights.
