Mary's Group's story

Mary, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 16 farmers in the Kilolo North District. She is 48 years old, married and has 4 children.

Mary 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 be more active in her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Mary plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

In total, Mary’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 8.5 acres of land.
