Mary'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 season, as well as a solar light.

Mary's Group's story

Mary is 42 years old and a proud mother of four children. She is a group leader who is often described as a very resourceful person. Mary is representing 13 farmers from Alego District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Mary has noticed that she has had more profits from each harvest.

Mary described her harvest as very good last year, but she believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, in addition to fertilizer and maize. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Mary’s group will be able to plant a total of 7.75 acres of land and purchase a total of three solar lights.
