Magreth's Group's story

Pictured above is Magreth, often described as an extremely friendly person. She is 42 years old and has 6 children. As a group leader, she is representing her group of 13 farmers in Kilolo South District, Tanzania.

Magreth is returning this season to work with One Acre Fund again as this means that she is able to have access to the best seed prices, which is why she decided to join in the first place. Magreth says that she is happy to have made that decision, because since she first joined in 2015, she has been able to consistently feed her family, which has improved her day to day life significantly. Magreth will use the profits from this season to send her children to school.

The group will use this loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer to plant a total of 21 acres. 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 7 solar lights.
