Letisia's Group's story

Letisia is 49 years old and has four children. She has been a farmer for more than 20 years and is always said to be a very resourceful person. Even though Letisia is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 12 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Letisia started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to the best seed prices. Since then, she has seen her life improve, especially in the sense that she has been able to consistently feed her family ever since. This year she decided to represent her group because she wanted to gain leadership skills.

Letisia’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of nine acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
