Fidea's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to gain access to cost-efficient hybrid seeds and fertilizer for maize cultivation.

Fidea's Group's story

Fidea is the group leader of her group in Iringa District, and she is representing 11 farmers, including herself. Fidea joined One Acre Fund for the first time this season, but she has been a farmer for 7 years.

Like many other farmers, Fidea decided to work with One Acre Fund to have access to the best seed prices. She hopes that by joining One Acre Fund and using the seeds and fertilizer she will get with this loan, she can join the ranks of the One Acre Fund farmers who have doubled their harvest in their first year of the program. She plans to use the profits she earns from this year’s harvest to send her children to school.

Fidea's Group will use the farming inputs received with this loan to cultivate a total of 9 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 2 solar lights.
