Imma's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Imma's Group's story

Imma's Group is made up of 8 farmers in Kilolo South District and is being represented by Imma, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 40 years old and has 7 children. Imma has been a farmer for 10 years and is often referred to as a very friendly person.

Imma isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed, especially in the sense that he has had more profits from each harvest ever since. This year, Imma will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to reduce the consumption of paraffin fuel and therefore save more money.

Using this loan, Imma's Group will purchase a total of 1 solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 5.5 acres.
