Maria'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.

Maria's Group's story

Maria, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is now proud to represent her group of 16 farmers in Wanging'ombe District. She is 44 years old, married, and has three children.

Maria likes to think of herself as a very friendly 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 been able to consistently feed her family. Maria plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy chicken.

In total, Maria’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 14.5 acres of land.
