Monika's Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to gain access to cost efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Monika's Group's story

This season is not the first that Monika is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017. Although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 11 farmers in Wanging Ombe District, Tanzania.

Monika is often described by her community as a very experienced farmer and decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. Like many of her fellow farmers, Monika decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, and she hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to repair her home.

This loan will not only help Monika but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 18 acres of land.
