but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Ponziano's Group's story

Pictured above is Ponziano, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 54 years old and has six children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of eight farmers in Iringa District, Tanzania.

Ponziano is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods which is why he decided to join in the first place. Ponziano says that he is happy to have made that decision because since he first joined in 2014, he has been able to consistently feed his family, which has improved his day-to-day life significantly. Ponziano will use the profits from this season to send his children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 7.5 acres. Given that one member of the group will also be purchasing a solar light with this loan, the group will also receive a total of one solar light.
