Anna's Group's story

Anna is 45 years old and has 3 children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and has always said to be a very hard working individual. Even though Anna is the only one featured in the above picture she is actually representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Anna started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013 and decided to do so because she wanted to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds. Since then, she has seen her life improve; especially in the sense that she has been able to save more money ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to be more active in her community.

Anna’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 8.5 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.
