Amina's Group's story

Featured in this picture is Amina, who is actually representing her group of 11 farmers from Kilolo North District, in Tanzania. Amina has always been described as a very trustworthy person, which is largely why she was selected to be the group leader.

Although Amina has been a farmer for 17 years, she is new to One Acre Fund. As part of her loan, she has decided to get not only farming inputs but also a solar light. She is very excited about this addition, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to study. She can’t wait to send her children to school with the profits she earns this coming season.

Amina’s group will be able to plant 9.5 acres with the farming inputs obtained through this loan and will receive three solar lights in total.
