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

A loan helped to pay for eucalyptus seedlings, fertilizer, training, and plantation maintenance support.

Hellen's Group's story

Hellen is a forty-year-old mother of five children. She and her husband farm coconut trees, cowpeas, cassava, and green peas. The greatest challenge she faces in her farming is not having enough capital to purchase pesticides to protect her crops against pests, or fertilizer to increase her yields. Hellen is excited to join the KOMAZA microforestry program because she believes that it is bringing change to the lives of many people in her village. She hopes to use the income from her KOMAZA tree farm to educate her children.
