Sophia'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.

Sophia's Group's story

Sophia, pictured above, has been a farmer for 18 years and is now proud to represent her group of 13 farmers in Wanging ombe District. She is 37 years old, married and has three children.

Sophia likes to think of herself as a very reliable person. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 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. Sophia plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Sophia’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 11 acres of land.
