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

A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvest season.

Mary's Group's story

Pictured above is Mary, who as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Chwele District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very experienced farmer.

Initially, Mary joined One Acre Fund in 2006, because she wanted to earn enough to feed her family. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Mary plans to send her children to school.

Between the 10 farmers in Mary's Group, a total of 5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light with this loan.
