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

Micknes' Group's story

Micknes, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 14 farmers in Kilolo North District. She is 49 years old, married and has four children.

Micknes likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 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. Micknes plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

In total, Micknes’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 24 acres of land.
