Thobieta's Group's story

Thobieta is the proud 40-year-old mother of 3 children. She is often described as a very hardworking individual. She is a group leader and is representing her group of 8 farmers in Iringa District. Since joining One Acre Fund in 2016, Thobieta has noticed that she has been able to consistently feed her family.

Thobieta described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, as well as fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light for her children to study by during dark hours. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Thobieta’s Group will be able to plant a total of 8 acres of land and purchase a total of 4 solar lights.
