Salima's Group's story

Salima, pictured above, has been a farmer for four years, and is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Kilolo South District. She is 26 years old, married, and has two children.

She likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Salima plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

In total, Salima’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 26.5 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 three solar lights.
