Mildred's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Mildred's Group's story

Pictured above is Mildred, who, as group leader, is representing her group of eight farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to six children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Initially, Mildred joined One Acre Fund in 2012 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Mildred plans to buy a cow.

Between the eight farmers in Mildred's Group, a total of 5.25 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, one of the farmers in the group will use this loan to purchase a solar light.
