Monica'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.

Monica's Group's story

Pictured above is Monica, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. She is 63 years old and has six children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of nine farmers in Kilolo South District, Tanzania.

Monica is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund, as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Monica says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2014, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day to day life significantly. Monica will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 6.5 acres. Some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light; the group will receive a total of four solar lights.
