but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase hybrid seeds and fertilizer to improve her harvests of maize.

Ireen's Group's story

Ireen is 54 years old and, as the group leader of her group, she is representing 12 farmers in Matete District. She is looking forward to be working with One Acre Fund for the first time this year, as this means she will get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds.

Ireen has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often described as a very hardworking individual. She decided to represent her group because she was just proposed by her team. With the profits she earns from this coming season, Ireen would like to rent more land to cultivate.

Between the 12 farmers in Ireen’s Group, a total of 9.5 acres will be planted using the inputs from this loan.
