Raymond's Group's story

Pictured above is Raymond, often described as an extremely hardworking individual. He is 45 years old and has seven children. As a group leader, he is representing his group of eight farmers in Kilolo North District, Tanzania.

Raymond is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that he is able to get the best quality fertilizer and hybrid seeds, which is why he decided to join in the first place. Raymond says that he is happy to have made that decision because, since he first joined in 2016, he has had more profits from each harvest, which has improved his day to day life significantly. Raymond will use the profits from this season to repair his home.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 12 acres.
