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

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer for the cultivation of maize, as well as a solar light.

Monika's Group's story

Monika, pictured above, has 6 children and is representing her group, formed by 13 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania. She joined One Acre Fund for the first time in 2012 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers.

With a portion of this loan, Monika will not only purchase maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, but also a solar light. Receiving a solar light as part of her loan means that now she will be able to have light during the night and have somewhere to charge her phone. Monika plans to use the profits she gains this year to invest in a business.

In total Monika’s Group will use the inputs received from this loan to plant a total of 16 acres of land. They will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
