Maria's Group's story

Maria, pictured above, has been a farmer for 11 years and is now proud to represent her group of 10 farmers in Iringa District. She is 31 years old, married, and has four children.

Maria likes to think of herself as a very friendly person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. 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 10.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing solar lights, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
