Erenesi'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.

Erenesi's Group's story

Pictured above is Erenesi, often described as an extremely experienced farmer. She is 60 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 8 farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Erenesi is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Erenesi says that she is happy to have made that decision because, since she first joined in 2018, she has been able to save more money, which has improved her day-to-day life significantly. Erenesi will use the profits from this season to save more money for the future.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant 8 acres. Given that some members will also be purchasing a solar light, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
