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 harvesting season.

Mary's Group's story

Pictured above is Mary, who, as a group leader, is representing 19 farmers in Teso District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very hardworking individual.

Mary joined One Acre Fund in 2013 because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since she joined the program, her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Mary plans to invest in a business.

Between the 19 farmers in Mary's Group, a total of 13 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. The group will also receive 7 solar lights.
