but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Rafael's Group's story

Rafael, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of ten farmers in Kilolo South District. He is 35 years old, married, and has three children.

Rafael likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to consistently feed his family. Rafael plans to use the profits from this coming season to invest in a business.

In total, Rafael’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 11 acres of land.
