Irene'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.

Irene's Group's story

Irene, pictured above, has been a farmer for 10 years and is now proud to represent her group of 7 farmers in Lugari District. She is 30 years old, married, and has 2 children.

Irene likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2018 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain respect from her community. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Irene plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy more land to cultivate in.

In total, Irene’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 5 acres of land.
