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

Sheila's Group's story

Sheila, who appears in the photo, has been a farmer for eight years. She is now proud to represent her group of 18 farmers from Matete District. Sheila is 29 years old, married, and has three children.

Sheila likes to think of herself as a very experienced farmer. She has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2019 and decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community. Sheila says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. She plans to use the profits from this coming season to buy a goat.

In total, Sheila’s group will receive inputs to cultivate 9.5 acres of land.
