Miriam'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.

Miriam's Group's story

Miriam, pictured above, has been a farmer for four years, and is now proud to represent her group of 12 farmers in Mumias District. She is 32 years old, married and has four children.

Miriam likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2017, and decided to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. She says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has been able to consistently feed her family. Miriam plans to use the profits from this coming season to send her children to school.

In total, Miriam’s Group will receive enough farming inputs to cultivate 4.25 acres of land. Given that a member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive one solar light.
