Retisia's Group's story

This season is not the first one that Retisia is working alongside One Acre Fund. She has been a member for a few years now, having joined the program in 2017 and, although she is the only person featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group of 9 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Retisia is often described by her community as a very friendly person. She decided to be the one to represent her group because she wanted to help more farmers. Like many of her fellow farmers, Retisia decided she wanted to be part of the One Acre Fund community in order to earn enough to feed her family and she hopes to use the profits from this year’s harvest to buy a cow.

This loan will not only help Retisia but the whole group, who will receive maize seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 10 acres of land. Additionally, one farmer in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 1 solar light.
