Maryclare's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Maryclare's Group's story

Maryclare, pictured above, has been a farmer for 20 years, and is now proud to represent her group of 15 farmers in Lugari District. She is 51 years old, married and has 4 children.

Maryclare likes to think of herself as a very hardworking individual. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2015 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in 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. Maryclare plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a cow.

In total, Maryclare’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 14 acres of land.
