Felista's Group's story

Felista is 42 years old and has 2 children. She has been a farmer for 11 years, and is always said to be a very friendly person. Even though Felista is the only one featured in the above picture, she is actually representing her group formed by 10 farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Felista started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2013, and decided to do so because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. 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 be more active in her community.

Felista’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 7.5 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light, and so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
