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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize.

Leokardi's Group's story

Leokardi, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of seven farmers in Wanging Ombe District. She is 52 years old, married and has four children.

Leokardi likes to think of herself as a very trustworthy person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017 and decided to represent her group because she likes being a leader. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. Leokardi plans to use the profits from this coming season to repair her home.

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