Spyrian's Group's story

Spyrian's Group is formed by 7 farmers in Iringa District and is being represented by Spyrian, who is the group leader pictured above. He is 60 years old and has 7 children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is often referred to as a very experienced farmer.

Spyrian isn’t new to One Acre Fund, he actually joined the program in 2015 and has since noticed his life has changed; especially in the sense that he has been able to save more money ever since. This year, Spyrian will not only get fertilizer and maize seeds as part of his loan, but will also purchase a solar light. He is very excited about this addition since now he will be able to have light during the dark hours for his children to be able to study.

Using this loan, Spyrian's Group will purchase a total of 1 solar light and use the farming inputs received to plant a total of 6 acres.
