One Acre Fund is one of the organizations that Kiva works with to change the lives of people. These farmers live in places that are so remote I could never travel there. Buy my money can help provide the seed, fertilizer, training and goods to market transport that will make a difference.
I learned about One Acre through a loan that was made to Rebecca....who is 31 years old and is supporting her family. She started as a receiver of this help and has now become a leader for the group....showing others how to become involved and increase the money they can grow/harvest to support their families. 173 different people from across the world banded together to pool money to fund her loan in December, 2013. The loan will be paid back by the end of 2014 and the Kiva lenders will be able to re-loan their money.
Isn't it inspiring to have such amazing people as Rebecca?
