Kassim's Group's story

Kassim, pictured above, has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is now proud to represent his group of 16 farmers in Kilolo North District. He is 40 years old, married, and has 3 children.

Kassim likes to think of himself as a very hardworking individual. He has been working alongside One Acre Fund since 2014 and decided to represent his group because he likes being a leader. He says that being part of the One Acre Fund community has meant that he has been able to save more money. Kassim plans to use the profits from this coming season to save more money for the future.

In total, Kassim’s Group will receive inputs to cultivate 13.5 acres of land. Given that some members of the group will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 2 solar lights.
