Mary's Group's story

Mary is the group leader of her group in Lugari District, and she is representing 10 farmers, including herself. Mary joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 19 years.

Like many other farmers, Mary decided to work with One Acre Fund in order to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of One Acre Fund farmers that have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

Mary's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 10 acres of land, as well as purchase three solar lights
