Monika'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, as well as a solar light.

Monika's Group's story

Monika, pictured above, has six children and is representing her group, formed by 10 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2013 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Monika will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to reduce their consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money. Monika plans to use the profits she makes this year to send her children to school.

Monika’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 9 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
